"SIGNS OF LIFE" Series I see this collection of 21 images as an urban archive and an anthropological as well as archeological time capsule of our culture's dreams, hopes, aspirations as well as heartbreaks. They are decades of signs, (lost dog, roommate wanted, estate sale), broadway musical posters, notes and stickers applied one on top of the other. They have weathered the storms and sunny days, just as we have and come through it all looking spectacular at the moment I captured their images. I have documented the tattered bits and layers and enlarged them to uncover the obscured artwork created by thousands of hands over perhaps a century, hidden in plain sight. Does anyone stop to really take in their surroundings? Because I had such terrible eyesight before my eye surgery, I have a tendency to want to see everything at its cellular level. Who knew metropolitan detritus could be so beautiful? Each piece is named after the actual street or in some cases the neighborhood that I found it by taking a tiny section of the papers posted on lamp posts throughout the Lower Manhattan neighborhoods. I hope you enjoy them and perhaps begin to notice more beauty in your daily strolls through life.

My philosophy is simple: to look at familiar objects in new ways, capturing their essences with my camera. None of my photographs are staged; I'm interested in capturing fleeting moments that arise spontaneously, distilling an image that will outlast the subject. susanburgerlivingbeautifully.com villasancti.com twitter.com/susan_burger
