Susan Bowen
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope



ARTIST STATEMENT: Although I have lived in suburbs, small towns, and have rural connections, the city is where my heart lies. Wherever I photograph, I see things from the perspective of an urbanite. I find it interesting how even in the country I seek out things industrial and man-made.

The urban experience to me is largely about motion. The intense pace and vitality of the city excites me; I like to shoot fast and furiously, to be totally immersed and to be swept up in, and along with, the tide of the moment. Either I am shooting people that are in motion or I myself am in movement around my subject. I will stalk my subjects, be they a swarm of gesturing humans or abstract shapes of color and light.

The long overlapping images are created by only partially advancing the film between exposures – the overlapping occurs in the film itself. It delights me how these mostly unplanned juxtapositions capture my experience of a particular time and place and at the same time have an identity all their own.
