NYC photographer Susan Rosenberg Jones shares with us the new photo series she has been working on: Widow/er. Susan meets with widows and widowers of all ages. They have a conversation, and she makes a portrait. In this conversation Susan talks to us about the process
Susan Rosenberg Jones began photographing with intention as a child.
She was born and raised in Boston, and moved to New York City in 1976. She holds a BS in Education from Lesley College.
In 2011 Susan began work on Building 1, a series about her neighbors in the apartment complex in Tribeca where she’d lived with her family since 1984.In 2012, as a tangent to her photographs of her neighbors, she began shooting in her own home, and her husband Joel was a willing subject. From this practice, Susan’s body of work, titled Second Time Around emerged. For her newest project, Widow/er, Susan makes portraits of widows and widowers, sifting through memories of loss and experience of acceptance with her sitters. She was awarded a 2017 Critical Mass Top 50 Photographer for Second Time Around.
