Descrizione Opera / Biografia

From my series Locked-In, which explores the sense of feeling stuck in life and the failure to control the forces that seem to dictate our lives. Using metaphor and imagery suggesting the inability to move on, the series depicts the condition of those, particularly women, who feel impotent in the face of a dominant societal power, especially the disappearance of relevancy with encroaching age.
After a successful career writing for American television comedies, Susan Borowitz embarked on a study of the practice of photography in 2011 and discovered a new medium by which to tell stories. Classes at New York City’s International Center for Photography led to creative self-portraiture and ultimately fine art photography, specifically staged narratives, where she expresses reflections of psychological journeys. She has won several awards for images in her series Locked-In, most notably Pollux Awards, LifeFramer, One Eyeland, and Chromatic Awards, and has been the subject of several artist interviews/profiles for online and print publications. Exhibition venues include New York, Ohio, Berlin and Barcelona.
