Suzanne Revy: To Venerate the Simple Days

ImageTo Venerate the Simple Days is a magical visual essay crafted by photographer Suzanne Revy on the joys of family and the explorations of summer.

Her images capture the sheer bliss of long days, imaginative play, and freedom within the landscape. Her use of a toy camera draws out a surprisingly melancholic mood at times, revealing memories and continued traditions within a family when school is over and obligations fall away. Experiencing this work is akin to gazing upon a field of fireflies at dusk, a rare and ephemeral experience to warm the heart.

Suzanne Revy received her B.F.A in photography from Pratt Institute. She was the Photo Editor of U.S. News & World Reports for nearly a decade before becoming Acting Picture Editor at Yankee Magazine in the late 90’s. For the last 10 years Suzanne has focused on her career as an artist: she has been exhibited locally and nationally as such venues as the Danforth Musuem, The Griffin Museum of Photography, Photoplace Gallery, and Texas Photographic Society. Suzanne is Represented by Panopticon Gallery, Boston MA.
