Susan Salinger is a graduate of the Juilliard School in New York and has worked for more than 40 years as a highly regarded artist, dancer, choreographer, and professional photographer. She has received The Society of Publication Designers Award for Photography for her work in Martha Stewart Living and two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships. Susan also has a Master’s of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Adelphi University, New York. Her artwork and choreography have been exhibited and performed extensively across the United States in museums, galleries, and performance art theaters such as MoMA P.S. 1, The Downtown Whitney Museum, and The Kitchen. Her photographic clientele is extensive and include Ferragamo, Cartier, J. Mendel, Bergdorf Goodman, Takashimaya, and Forbes Magazine. Using a scanning electron microscope, Susan's ant portraits of extreme close-up imagery can be equated to both alien forms and our everyday, functional, living experiences. She is currently working on an art video and still photography project shot in the Great Basin of Utah, another video essay on jellyfish in the Bosphorus Sea near Istanbul, and will soon begin a series of images shot in the Sahara Desert of Morocco in fall of 2018.
