国产偷拍视频“Beauty brings copies of itself into being. It makes us draw it, take photographs of it, or describe it to other people.”

– Elaine Scarry, On Beauty and Being Just

 

Southward Hett Susan Bryant

 

Susan Bryant Artist Statement:

Elaine Scarry describes best why and how I use my camera: I am as amazed by the beauty in ordinary objects I collect from flea markets as by the grace of sculptures made millennia ago in Greece and Rome. I am equally stunned by a sunset in Florence as by the presence of a large oak tree on our street in Tennessee. I’m inspired by the familiar and the exotic; what surrounds me in my everyday life and places I see for the first time. My work is unapologetically informed by the history of beautiful images, romanticism, and by the Pictorialists who used photography as a means of creating an image rather than simply recording it. I am drawn to light and atmosphere, to mystery and metaphor.

国产偷拍视频For the past ten years, I have been employing the wet-plate collodion process. In addition to the glass and metal plates I expose in my 4x5 and 8x10 cameras, I am also interested in the integration of this 19th century process with 21st century digital technology. My process yields tintypes, ambrotypes, gelatin silver prints made from the glass negatives in addition to limited edition digital prints made from scans of the plates. I’m challenged and inspired by this leaping from one century’s technology and aesthetic to another.

While looking at the world through my camera I am present in a specific place and moment, observing, really looking. One of the many reasons I am drawn to the collodion process is that it requires me to slow down and to pay attention. I’m able to experience the stillness required by the extended exposure time, the silence in the darkroom while the magical alchemy takes place, and the anticipation of the singular, mysterious object that results.
