Susan Eder Nature Photographs

In Frames of Reference, various scenes were photographed through the eyeglasses of friends and family members, by placing the left and right prescription lenses over the camera. The resulting pairs of distorted and blurred images, presented in round or oval frames, literalize the idea of unique, subjective “filters” through which each person experiences the world. Seeing Through (Artists’ Eyes) is comprised of adjoined photographs of artists’ self-portraits, shot in art museums; all but the eyes have been painted out in blue-black acrylic, leaving a band of darkness pierced by self-scrutinizing stares.
