Two Way Lens and Susan Burnstine

Two Way Lens proudly presents Susan Burnstine.

I am very happy and excited that another outstanding photographer is part of my project now.

Susan Burnstine is an award winning photographer based in Los Angeles. Her recently published first monograph Within Shadows earned lots of attention and won the Gold Award for PX3 Prix de La Photographie Paris in the Professional Fine Art Books category and a Bronze Overall.

Within Shadows was first released in Europe at The Venice Biennale and is published by Charta Editions.

The dream like visions Susan creates are entirely made in-camera without any post processing manipulations.

To achieve this, Susan created over twenty hand-made film cameras and lenses that are frequently unpredictable and technically challenging. The cameras are primarily made out of plastic, vintage camera parts and random household objects and the single element lenses are molded out of plastic and rubber.

Susan's work has been exhibited internationally, is included in many private and public collections and represented by galleries across the world.

Please visit Susan's website to see more of her wonderful work.
