Photographs by Susan Theodore

Susan began exploring the world with her camera almost forty years ago. As she walked through Chicago neighborhoods and around the lakefront, she tried to make visual sense of the streets, buildings and people she encountered. She began capturing images that resonated with her and seemed to evoke memories and emotions in the viewer.

When she moved to Monterey, CA in 2003, she was enchanted by the great visual difference from Chicago. Her first exploration was of the historic missions and adobes, fishing boats, wharf activity and sea coast that seemed so foreign to her.  Susan’s move to Chico, CA in 2017 has opened a whole new realm of photographic opportunities in this bustling university town.

Susan strives to make photographs to attract and hold the attention of an audience, giving each viewer a sense of what she saw and offering them an opportunity to enter into a photograph from their individual perspectives.  As her images continue to evolve, she attempts to distill the visuals she photographs into their core emotional components. As you explore the photographs in these galleries, let your mind wander into interesting avenues and byways.

Her work has been exhibited in many galleries on the Monterey Peninsula, as one person shows and in collections. Her work may be purchased by contacting: susan.theodore2@gmail.com
