Susanne von Schroeder
I live in the beautiful Blue Hills in northern Wisconsin.
I have been a gardener most of my life and owned my own greenhouse business. It was the flowers that inspired me to become more serious with photography and in December of 2006 I bought my first digital SLR camera. I am completely self taught and am constantly learning new techniques. My preferred subjects are still flowers and other close-ups in nature but I also enjoy landscape photography.
My inspiration comes from the beauty and serenity I find in nature.
Love, Beauty, Intuition are functions of the soul which take us out of the mind into the realm of heart and soul - if only for brief moments.
Most of us are so caught up in the mundane day to day living and the density of this physical world. We forget or are unaware of the magic and beauty surrounding us and need reminders.
As photographers we try to capture this perfect and oh so often fleeting moment. Some call a photograph a "moment frozen in time". For me it is an ambivalent term as I want an image to be alive, fluid and vibrating. I want the viewer to get engaged with the viewed.
I want the viewer to experience something of the mystery and glory, grant him/her a peek behind the veil and discover a heightened sense of awareness and peace.
When my photography can be that reminder, that little nudge we all need it has served its purpose.
I published 2 books on Blurb.
I attend a few art fairs and sell my photos on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/SoulCenteredPhotoart)
Art is the conversation between lovers.
Art offers an opening for the heart.
True art makes the divine silence in the soul
break into applause.
