Sue Biggs

Artist Statement

These photographs are some of my personal favorite pieces from the beginning of my digital adventure to the present. I love still life images, though my greatest body of work is photographing people. This probably comes from the hours I spent as a child with my nose planted in the pages of National Geographic magazines looking at the photos of colorful people walking through their daily lives and expressing their momentary bursts of emotions. From that experience I developed my style which has been dubbed by others as painting like, street journalistic, or as “cowboy photography” because I “shoot from the hip!”
