Speaker: Suda House, Suda House, Professor of Art and Photography, Grossmont College
“Radically re-seeing women’s empowerment is exactly what Suda House’s four decades-long photographic journey does as it harkens back to female archetypes including the planet on which we live. Humanity is umbilically tied to Mother Earth (Gaia), three quarters of which is water.”
—Gwenyth Mapes, Grossmont College
Suda House asserts, “As a woman, I stand in complete wonder and awe of life itself, and with a wide-eyed curiosity, I continue to photograph, to get beneath the surface, to discover what is under our skin, by laying bare the subliminal nature of the feminine, the carnal within us, the unearthing of our maternal fate and the venerable nature that is within all women.”
Join us as House surveys her 45-year career as a photographer, providing insight into her work, including its ties to water, and a preview of her upcoming exhibition at the San Diego Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA).
