Susan Brandt Graham is an award winning photographic artist offering a unique view into the creative feminine mind. Formally trained as a social anthropologist (PhD), and board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology (MD), she has taught Anthropology at the university level and had a private Ob-Gyn practice until retiring from clinical medicine. Living in the "Land of Enchantment," she is never at a loss for photographic subjects. Photo essays and conceptual photography are currently her major interests.
Current photo essays with New Mexico themes are Observing Day of the Dead Albuquerque Style: "Lowriders," "Beliefs, Culture, Politics," and "Celebrating Life;" and "Cooper's Hawk Courtship Display." Watch for more in these series, as well as a three-volume set for "Observing Day of the Dead Albuquerque Style."
In "Seeing Color Colorblind" she uses the art and technology of digital photography to unlock the fascinating world seen through the eyes of her son and father, both with severe red color deficiencies. Intrigued since the early 1970's with how the two of them could watch a football game on a black and white television and discuss "the blue team and the yellow team," she solved the mystery as she worked on "seeing color colorblind."
"Persephone's Choice: Every Woman's Dilemma" combined her background in social anthropology and medicine with conceptual portraiture to discuss "being female."
