Sue Abramson
American Photographer
Abramson first learned photography when she was 12 years old, and eventually went to art school where she discovered the medium format film that she still uses for her work today. She has been inspired by nature ever since she spent her childhood summers at the Adirondacks, and her works continue to depict elements of the environment. The passings of her older brother in 1973 and later her husband in 2006 largely impacted her work, as she found photography to be a useful outlet during those times (from Abramson's interview with Doug Oster for Everybody Gardens).

Abramson has used her photographs to respond to those personal issues of loss and grief, as well as more public social issues like women's reproductive health. She was previously the Associate Professor of Photography at Pittsburgh Filmmakers (a position she held for 30 years), and her works have been acquired and shown by both regional and international institutions.
