Born and bred in Australia, Susan Gordon-Brown has close to two decades of photography experience, working at a national and international level. Prior to settling in Melbourne in 2000, Susan lived and worked in London for 10 years, where she studied photography at the City of Westminster College.
She has a broad range of expertise, specialising in portrait photography. Her portfolio is testament to the fact that her subjects immediately relax in her company, trusting her to produce the photograph that shows the true person.
In recent years, Susan has staged well received historical photo documentary exhibitions including 56 Faces, a moving tribute to Australians who survived the 1956 Hungarian uprising and made Australia their home, 40 Days, an exploration of cultural and religious practices of contemporary Australia and Down South: Australian Tradies in Antarctica telling the stories of the of the intrepid and skilled tradespeople who have ventured to the Antarctic from 1947 to the 1980s. Currently Behind the Wire: Images and Stories of Vietnam Veterans is on tour around Australia.
Susan is a member of MAPgroup, a collection of acclaimed Australian photographers who document important Australian issues and topics. Susan's photographs of drought-ravaged Australia were featured in the group’s book, “Beyond Reasonable Drought”.
She is increasingly called upon to produce comprehensive “image libraries” for clients, creating a cost-effective and customised photographic resource to accommodate future business needs.
