The Linder Gallery at Keystone College’s LaPlume campus will present an exhibition of photography by East Stroudsburg-based artist Susie Forrester from Sunday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Oct. 12, in the Linder Gallery.
The exhibition, which is entitled “The Eternity of Moment,” features her landscapes and subject-based photography. A reception for the artist will be held Thursday, Sept. 18, from 5-7 p.m. in the gallery and Forrester will speak about her work and creative process on Wednesday, Sept. 17, at 9:45 a.m. in the Brooks Theatre.
After finishing an apprenticeship with internationally renowned photographer Larry Link, Forrester exhibited her landscapes and subject-based photography throughout Pennsylvania. She used her day job as a hotographer to strengthen her artistic vision. As in wedding photography, where photographs revolve around the bride and groom along with family and friends, organizers say that Forrester infuses the idea of the basic subject-centered photograph to focus the viewer’s gaze on the importance of the subject. She is adept at capturing the precise moment, summing up the scene at hand, managing not only to focus the viewer’s gaze, but also capture the ethereal qualities of the moment.
“Susie’s best photos capture not only the image, but the boundaries surrounding the images’ emotional appeal. She never just takes a picture, she takes stock of the framework holding the entire image together,” said James Lansing, director of the Linder Gallery. “Her best works have started to take on an abstract quality and, while this may seem counterproductive in lieu of her reliance on her subjects being centered in the frame, it supports her overall vision, and helps make her vision more of a complete statement.”
