Susan A. Barnett

Susan A. Barnett is a Manhattan based photographer.  In her photographic series After Neon she has captured a visual hunger founded in desire: illuminated enticement. The images contain the signs and symbols that are representative of desire’s stock in trade, in that they create the atmosphere of delight where it is still safe to appreciate and like what is offered.

She juxtaposes elements of the real world with artificial light to create a new world – one that entices the viewer into accepting their own fears and desires.

This series is similar to one (as far as subject matter goes) that I will be working on for the Graduate Exhibition next year…having said that, I will probably change my mind before then.
