Sue Abramson is a fine art photographer working in Pittsburgh. For four decades she has produced work using a variety of methods in connection with the environmental landscape. Abramson’s photography focuses on the organic and fragmented composition of nature and explores the process of grief and grieving. Her recent exhibition at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, The Only Constant is Change, includes garden work made in response to a life in transition. Abramson’s book, A Woodlands Journal is a decades long photographic meditation on her evolving relationship with light, loss, chaos and place.  She recently retired from her Associate professor of photography position at Pittsburgh Filmmakers, where she taught for 30 years. Art critic Mary Thomas writing for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette called Abramson’s work “simultaneously confident and humble, assertive and demure…. [Abramson’s] commitment and close observation have resulted in a honed body of work in which the superfluous is eliminated to produce compositions that project beauty and not a little mystery through subjects that are often dismissed as mundane.”
