Susan Wides is best known for her cityscapes, landscapes, botanicals, and waxworks. Wides has engaged familiar genres and proceeded to reinvent them. She uses the essence of her equipment–a view camera and lens–to explore perception and camera vision. Her photographs have been featured in 18 one-person shows and over 60 group exhibitions in the US and Europe. Wides has had solo exhibitions at The Center For Creative Photography, Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, Art in General, Urbi et Orbi Galerie and PS122 and next year will be featured in a solo exhibition at the Hudson River Museum. Her work is in the permanent collections of The International Center of Photography, Princeton University Art Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Bibliotheque Nationale, Norton Museum and Museum of the City of New York, among others. Articles about her work have appeared in Art in America, Artforum, New York Times, New Yorker, Village Voice and many catalogues. She contributes to magazines such as New York, Harpers, Architecture, and 2wice. Wides is represented by the Kim Foster Gallery in New York City. You can learn at
