Photography is known for isolating a tiny slice of time by capturing a scene, usually in a split second. Although Susan Goldstein uses her camera to make work as just described, she also uses gelatin silver prints to create the basis for a completely imagined image. She layers steel with glass, transparencies and damaged antique paper, to create these images. The materials Susan uses date from the 1860’s and the imaging techniques involved span three centuries. This process allows her to use her hands to create images that are simply the result of her imagination.
