Suzanne Mejean

January 2007

Suzanne Mejean arrived at Light Work ready to make c-prints and a final edit of her three-year project photographing her mother and other family and friends in the Greenwich, CT community. With this work, Suzanne gives great consideration to the issues of authorship and collaboration inherent to portraiture, particularly when photographer and subject are close and the subject is photographed over lengths of time.

Suzanne Mejean has studied at The School of the International Center of Photography, Certificate Program and holds a BA from Bucknell University in Art History and Studio Art. She has exhibited internationally and received numerous awards, including “ICP: 20 Photographers From 20 Years,” presented at the Annual Photo Festival in Arles, France. In addition to her artwork, she has commerical photography clients such as Dovecote Records and Getty Images. She is currently living and working in Los Angeles, CA.
