‘Impasse’ Creating Beauty out of Trauma.

Impasse, photo by Susan Burnstine
A ghostly figure is seen advancing – or departing – in Susan Burnstine’s photograph, taken on her uniquely customised camera.
She suffers from night terrors, and uses her photography to tackle them.
“My mother, who was a musician and artist, suggested I draw, paint or sculpt my dreams to understand them,” she told Edward Siddons.
“She taught me to articulate them in a positive light and, in the process, free myself from their power.
And that’s why I shoot: to create beauty out of trauma.”
