elysian (adj): beautiful of creative; divinely inspired; peaceful and perfect


hello, my name is Susan.


i am a film photographer, writer, artist, traveller, calligrapher and baker. through my experiences i try to define that which makes us human:

the raw hungry desire to live and love… and its satiation

being on the inside looking out the world looking in, helps me stay true to myself, no matter how convoluted that gets.

thank you for visiting my blog, i hope you enjoy my stories!


all my photographs were taken using the Mamiya RB67 ProS with Velvia 100 or the Fuji X100T or the trusty iPhone
