Susana Reisman

b. 1977, Venezuela

Short Bio

Susana Reisman is a graduate from the School of Imaging Arts & Sciences from the Rochester Institute of Technology (Rochester, NY). As a photo-based artist, she is deeply interested in questioning forms of visual representation. Her work seeks to address the ways in which we experience and interpret what we see; how we encounter, read, construct, classify, and evaluate our visual world.

Born and raised in Venezuela, Susana Reisman continues to live a nomadic life—currently dividing her time between Toronto and Caracas. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Canada.
