About Susan Wright
Three decades of experience
A little about me.... Telling a story within a photographic frame has always been an intriguing process for me, working with light, shadow, subject matter, composition and the unexpected elements of any given moment.
For the past 3 decades I’ve been working as a photographer and this journey has taken me from the coast and outback of Australia, to north America, and extensively throughout western and eastern Europe and the Mediterranean. Learning my craft in the days of film, hand-held light meters and dark rooms, proved a valuable foundation for honing my technical and artistic skills prior to the transition into pixels and the disposable file.
I’ve always believed that feeling a deep sense of connection to a place and allowing it to speak to you in it's subtle ways and revealing a true essence is what makes for compelling travel photography. Nowhere else have I felt this deep sense of connection more than in Italy.
The country’s rich diversity, outrageous beauty, endless artistic and cultural history, are a constant source of inspiration for me. I’ve developed a deeper appreciation and understanding of this complex and fascinating country. I now speak fluently in Italian which I’ve found invaluable in connection and open expression with the locals.
