Art Show by Susan Onysko
March 1 @ 8:00 am - June 23 @ 5:00 pm
Susan Onysko is a travel photographer who has devoted the last decade to the art of capturing evocative stories from some of the most remote and extreme locations of our world. In places like Bhutan, Mongolia, New Zealand, Morocco, Patagonia, India, Thailand, Cambodia, Antarctica, Tibet, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Turkey, and more, Susan has an eye for unexpected images that evoke that locale’s purest essence. Because she quietly positions herself to convey a relatable moment that unites us in our similarities, her well-rounded, professional work has garnered numerous awards and exhibits and has been featured in Popular Photography Magazine and Photo District News.
Onysko shares, “While these images are from far-reaching and diverse locales, there is a symmetry that runs through them. My goal in all of my work is to create, simple, classic, timeless images that can appeal to everyone. I seek to produce images that tell stories, reflecting a truth in the subject matter that is simultaneously unique and universal. Hopefully they instill within you an appreciation of this distant place while at the same time allow you to relate on some level.”
She explains further, “In my nature photography I strive for minimalism. Whether that comes from seeking out lone trees with personalities all their own or omitting other elements in the frame of a cluttered image, the end result is the same: a vision of nature that is simple and solely mine. Photographing nature leaves me feeling connected and living in the moment in a way that is indescribably unique.”
“With wildlife,” she notes, “I search for emotive images that show the similarities between man and wildlife. In Scotland I have been mere inches away from nesting puffins to capture the emotional moment. I have walked with Polar Bears as close to twenty feet away from me in Canada in order to convey the splendor of the majestic beasts. The grace, power, and grandeur of nature always take my breath away and leaves me wanting more.”
