Photographer Susan Stoll is attracted to the close-up observation of nature, exploring the vast array and intricacies of pattern and color. She inspires to seek out hidden qualities that otherwise might be overlooked by passersby. Her macro, digital photography showcases botanical images from her excursions. She hopes viewers will be drawn to the beauty, not only captured in her images, but that which is all around them.
Susan was first introduced to photography as a young child. She was permitted to use her father’s old box camera to take pictures of her sister. She recalls the excitement she felt when she saw the pictures she took. She sees the world with an artistic eye that was influenced by many art instructors, including Wayne Thiebaud, who taught her more than just the basics of seeing color, composition, light, and space; she learned the importance of understanding her subject matter. Susan shared her love of nature and creative expression for many years as a Montessori teacher and art teacher. The value of observing and understanding nature, as seen through a young child’s exploration and creativity, opens up a world of wonder and hope. Photography for Susan is a passion, a way of seeing the world’s beauty.
