Biography

Sussie Weinold is an awardwinning Danish filmdirector and photography-based visual artist

 

"I am fascinated by the things in life that we find it difficult to have a language for; all the emotions we share but can't speak of. Photographing is for me a way of communicating with the outside world in order to understand the complexity of life.

 

I like the way images influence one another, how rhythmic repetitions, lyrics and light unfold into a visual story. With many possible interpretations the photographs become an organic story that unite reverberation and meaning."
