Susan Silas

Susan Silas, a dual American and Hungarian national, was born in Manhattan in 1953. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Susan attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon for her bachelor’s degree and the California Institute of the Arts for her Masters of Fine Art.

Silas has photographed quite extensively in Central Europe. One recent project, Helmbrechts Walk, 1998-2003; documents her 225 mile walk in the Czech Republic and Germany retracing the steps of a historic death march at the close of the Second World War. Two projects have taken her to the Tisza River in Hungary: The Dreamlife of Mayflies (which our edition features) and Eastern Hungary in 106 Bus Shelters, 2009.

Susan has a long list of exhibitions, publications, and awards. Recent honors include an October 2010 essay in the New York Times Modern Love column titled Sex on the Run? No, We Parked, and residential fellowships at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in 2010 and at the Ucross Foundation in 2009.
