Artist Statement

My photographs express the search for connection—the struggle between recognition and anonymity. I use elements found in an environment as metaphors for obscuration and uncertainty.  


Sue Michlovitz is a photographer living in Camden, Maine. Her interests as an artist are in photography and book arts.

Michlovitz’s (other) career as a physical therapist & hand specialist required astute observation skills of movement patterns and interpersonal interactions. These experiences have helped inform how she sees through the lens. Her outreach medical mission and community volunteerism has fed her inner self and added heart to her artistic expression.

Some of the artists Sue has studied with include Jay Maisel, Cig Harvey, Sean Kernan, John Paul Caponigo and Joyce Tenneson. She honors the richness they have added to her artistic vision and techniques.

She has shown her work in juried shows at the State of the Art Gallery, Ithaca, NY and has donated pieces to fundraisers for humanitarian efforts.

Presently, she is an MFA Candidate in Media Arts at Maine Media College, Rockport, Maine.
