Photography by Susitna Marasul
My work is a lifelong engagement with the question of what it is to be human.
I create in order to probe the depths of the psyche as well as hold space for untold stories to be spoken into the visual landscape that makes up our day to day lives.
I love finding beauty in every moment, and photography provides me with the opportunity to discover the essence of the human experience.
I believe that art can deeply heal us both as a collective and as individuals.
My mission revolves around taking responsibility for my own healing and empowerment through self-portraiture, exploring the divine feminine in women and nature, and giving women’s spirituality a face and a voice in a world that so desperately needs Her.
