Susan Derges was a painter before, than she has turned to photography. She is now a well-known contemporary artist, she works along with Adam Fuss and Garry Fabian Miller. Susan is working with camera less photography, in particular. This process seems quite elegant and simple, but it allows fixing different shadows onto light sensitive paper. It gives a really unusual and powerful effect.

Susan Derges has invented a new way of making photographs, she is often not doing it in a dark room, but outside, in the open air, at night. In some of her photographs, Derges is combining camera less and camera based techniques, this helped her become quite recognizable.
