About

b. 1986, HK.

Being

Susan is an award-winning photographer, with work bridging commercial and fine art worlds in her conceptual approach to fashion, portraits, things, and motion. Her work has been described as cinematic, moody and emotionally charged with color and dark humor. She is most known for “Modern Fairy Tales”, a photo and video series that reimagines well known fairy tales through their lesser-known, darker-rooted story. This series takes a modern re-interpretation in narrative, style and with dark humor. Her work has been shown in NY, LA, SF, Minneapolis, Tokyo and most recently at Aqua Art Miami during Miami Art Week / Art Basel.
