About Sulfiati Magnuson
The driving force in my life, as an artist and psychotherapist, is to search for manifestations of beauty and soul. As a psychotherapist, I witness gold of the soul reveal itself in my office. As a photographer, I capture humanity revealed at births and deaths, tragedies and triumphs, and times of cultural transformation. I attended landmark events in the Sixties: the Elysian Park Love-In (LA’s first Love-in), the Monterey International Pop Festival, and the Big Sur Festival of 1968. I lived in an intentional community in the ‘70s. As a grief counselor and a believer in the power of art to heal even the deepest wounds, I photographed the self-healing memorials of Columbine and NY's 9/11 where I was a volunteer counselor. Most recently, I've been in Uganda, where humans have not forgotten we all need each other, and we must endure through love. My photos are the "quilts" I would leave behind had I grown up on the American prairie. My arms are full of images, and I offer them to you.
