It Is What It Is (May 6, 2020)
Susan Moldenhauer’s sweeping meditation on the Trump administration is deceptively beautiful, with images as soaring as the western skies she resides under, but when paired with words, the images are empowered with purpose. — Billy Howard, curator, Election 2020: What Matters
Recently, a selection of my View from Home | Season IV images–all made since the onset of the COVIC-19 pandemic–were selected for publication in the online photography magazine called South X Southeast. Curated by photographer and writer Billy Howard, the series Election 2020: What Matters poses a compelling idea in this pandemic age of social isolation–to consider a series by artists thinking about the future as we approach the presidential election. The result is an intriguing collection of essays that explore what is occupying artists and writers’ minds and work in considering What Matters Now. Published in July 2020, this and the next three issues of South X Southeast photomagazine will include essays on this topic.
I wish to express my sincere thanks to Billy Howard and publisher Nancy McCrary for including my work in this important series.
