Susanne Buckler began her art career as a sculptor but she soon found the immediacy of photography. For 25 years her photography studio, Foto Imagerie, was a major contributor in the world of jewelry, lifestyle, interiors, and food with clients including Saatchi, Unilever, Food & Wine magazine, and Avon.
Her latest project, Talk to Me, is a mixed media installation of portraits of women. Buckler’s ongoing investigation of women’s bodies was spurred by her disfigurement brought on by a life-threatening disease. The project offers women a common ground to explore their emotional core through their own bodies.
In 2016 Buckler was awarded the Special Recognition First Place Award in the Manhattan Arts International HERStory 2016 Juried Exhibition. She has exhibited at the Soho Photo Gallery and the Professional Women Midtown Gallery in New York, and, at LABspace in Great Barrington, MA. She has been featured in the Manhattan Arts International, Photo District News, and Photo Design Magazine, and she has taught at the School of the Visual Arts (SVA) in New York. Buckler received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). She lives and works in New York City.
