In the series “Walks,” Suzette Bross captures her various commutes getting from one place to another. Studying the practice of everyday life, Bross creates gridded photo arrangements using her feet as focal points and the ground as a referent. She has exhibited at Jack Geary Contemporary, New York; the Cleveland Museum of Art; and the New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe. Bross’s work is in the public collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.

About Suzette Bross

In color, photographic images captured on her smartphone, Suzette Bross explores the lives of her daughters, the landscape of her own childhood, and the contemporary human relationship to the visual world. For her “iScapes” series, taken during her routine commute, Bross photographs the Chicago shoreline of her childhood; an arm or the edge of a car window often appears in the frame. Roadside imagery and trucks flash by, sometimes appearing only as horizontal stripes of color, suggesting the ephemerality of image consumption and the memories they represent warped over time. “We live in an age of accelerated transition,” she has said. “These images are of the ‘in between’ places. Consider them part of our new picturesque, symbols of America, symbols of internal musing.”

American, b. 1968
