Susan Worsham is a photographer from Richmond, Va, who -- after some time out west -- has recently begun photographing again in her home town. At the moment, she is finding recognition both regionally and nationally. In addition to winning awards and being juried into major photography shows, she has just published a large portfolio of her work in Ahorn Magazine, an online fine art photography magazine.
Her website features images made in Virginia. Susan's work invites consideration in terms of a southern perspective. One of her portfolios is entitled "Some Fox Trails in Virginia"; another, "By the Grace of God," drawing on the old self-identifying taunt, "I'm American by birth, but Southern by the grace of God."
Susan also has work in the 18th annual International Photography Competition sponsored by the Texas Photographic Society. This show opened at the Kirchman Gallery, 213 N Nugent Street, Johnson City, Texas, on September 11th and will remain up through October. Her work was awarded First Place in this show, juried by Cig Harvey, Associate Professor of Art at the Art Institute of Boston.
Susan will also have work on exhibit starting October 4th and up through November 8th at the 12 12 Gallery in Richmond, as part of the National Juried Photography Exhibition 2009, in a show juried by Julian Cox, Curator of Photographs at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
