About Susan Georgette
I am a native Montrealer, an emerging artist, in my 4th year at Concordia University working towards a B.F.A. in Photography. I also have a B.A. in Music from this same school. As I reflect on my practice and work within Documentary and Portraiture, there is always an emphasis on Landscape. Not just about how we see an area of land at the glance of an eye; not how we change the land to accommodate our needs - good or bad; not just how Landscape gives us a cultural and, indeed, a national identity; but just in the very basic fact that we all live on this Earth, this Land, so intimately connected to it - the notion that we are all 'wrapped' in the Landscape. All my projects have stemmed from this concept. I am interested in how different cultures and communities the world over change, manipulate, use, alter the landscape for food, work and leisure.
