About her photography:
Susanne’s work concerns people and their feelings.
Being human, concerning life. She does not want to make a statement, or be judgmental.
But show how she is touched by people, and what she sees in them.
If someone can be true to their nature, and not pretend to be anything other them themselves it is almost always beautiful. Then people show their openness, vulnerability and love. That is what she wishes to voice in her work.
