Microcosm Photography - Canadian & Cuban Photographer, Lorraine [Weitzel] Susak | About

Residing in the Thompson-Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada; venturing and exploring to places where I often see the other side of the postcard.

With a passion for the sound of water, the smell of a forest after the rain, watching the grasslands in the wind, and feeling the rocks beneath my feet, as I walk along a shoreline or off the beaten path. Yet inspired by watching my garden awake in the spring, as it rejuvenates the soul, and experiencing the divisions of the seasons as they unfold. Or taking a walk through urban areas, marveled by the architecture of today or days gone by. Yet pausing now, then and again; noticing the people, as so often, their faces define an unspoken story. These are the moments in time that I would like to capture. 

For myself, it is not so much the camera, equipment or the mechanics of it all where the enjoyment of photography resides.  It is being able to be spontaneous, to venture outside and capture the ordinary, but in the light of how see them. 




“To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliot Erwitt
