About Gioia Kuss
Gioia Kuss lives in Weybridge Vermont, USA. Her academic background combines art and science, informing her images of natural and man-made structures and processes, with a photojournalistic style and sensibility. She worked as a counselor in Vermont communities, damaged by severe flooding after Tropical Storm Irene; this drove home how vulnerable society is from the effects of climate change and environmental degradation. While firmly rooted in Vermont, she has traveled widely and lived in Paris, the Swiss Alps, and across the US. Speaking other languages helps in her quest to understand different cultural and natural environments.
