Susan Keiser is a fine art photographer whose work explores the real-world expression of dreams and memories, abstract and conceptual ideas.
She got her first camera as a suburban high school student intent on documenting the chaos and magic that was New York City in the late 60s. While photography remained a passion, it wasn't until digital cameras and printers made it possible for artists to make their own color prints that it became her primary focus. The casual purchase of a vintage doll on Ebay was the start of this ongoing project, a miniature world which reflects and comments upon our individual and cultural histories.
Her work has been exhibited in a wide range of museums and galleries both here and abroad, including The Baum Gallery, University of Central Arkansas; Anchorlight Gallery, Raleigh, NC; PH21 Gallery, Budapest, Hungary; The Barrett Art Center, Poughkeepsie, NY; the Griffin Museum, Stoneham, MA; Berlin Foto Biennale, Berlin, Germany; Beard Gallery, SUNY Cortland; Catalyst Gallery, Beacon, NY; Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, CO; The Los Angeles Center for Photography; and Candela Books + Gallery, Richmond, VA.
