about

Susan E. Evans is based in Detroit, MI and is an Associate Professor at Oakland University. She holds a B.F.A. in Photography and Holography from Goddard College and a M.F.A. in Photography from Cornell University. Evans has work appearing in national and international collections some of which include: George Eastman House Photography Museum, Rochester, NY; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA; Museum of Fine Art, Houston, TX; Musée de l'Elysée, Lausanne, Switzerland, Tourisme Bienne Seeland, Bienne, Switzerland and Galerie Lichtblick, Köln, Germany. For her current long term project, Polar Objective, ice is pulled from the environment and shaped into photographic optics which are placed into a hand-made lens and used to photograph the landscape. Each ice optic is unique and irreplaceable, just like the landscapes photographed. As with the landscapes, the lenses will melt and disappear. Expression becomes primary over representation as a means to engage and educate the public about climate change science though an immediate emotional (personal) connection to place, a relationship which is poorly represented in the larger dialogue of climate change.
