About Me - suzannesahakian

I started out to be a ballet dancer, chasing my dreams to New York, then pursued a career in law after a knee injury sidelined my dance career.  After 26 years as a commercial litigator, I decided to turn my attention back to more creative pursuits, not that law isn't creative, and happily delved into my photography with a vengeance.


As you will see, I am drawn to arrangements of color, both simple lines and complicated detail, the drama and playfulness of light, and scenes that present themselves without pretense or preordination.  I am particularly fascinated by the evolution of what my eye first sees, then sees through the lens of my camera, then sees again as the image is viewed and refined on my computer, then sees in the final printed image.  Many of my photos are mistaken for paintings.


I print all my own work on a Canon iPF6400 printer or a Canon Pixma Pro-10 on Hahnemühle FineArt Baryta paper, 325 gsm.  For information on sizing and purchasing, please contact me at: sahakian.suzanne@gmail.com.
