Susan Borowitz

"I am a storyteller. And it’s the story deep inside our psyches that I seek to tell, revealing opposing forces inherent in my subject: humor in the darkness, beauty in the ugly, oddity in the banal. I invite my viewers to feel uncomfortable."

After a successful career writing for American television comedies, Susan Borowitz embarked on a study of the practice of photography in 2011 and discovered a new medium for telling stories. Classes at New York City’s International Center for Photography led to creative self-portraiture and ultimately fine art photography, specifically staged narratives, where she expresses reflections of psychological journeys. She has won several awards for images in her series Locked-In, most notably Pollux Awards, LifeFramer, One Eyeland, Chromatic Awards, and APA, and has been the subject of several artist interviews/profiles for online and print publications. Exhibition venues include New York, Ohio, Berlin and Barcelona.
