Photographer Suzanne Saroff

Photographer Suzanne Saroff started photographing the classic way: she got hooked to her disposable camera and shot everything she liked. She wanted to teach herself everything about photography, lightning and the right composition. Compositions became more and more important, up to the point she found her true fit, which she is well-known for now: putting glasses filled with water in front of objects. From lobsters to flowers, everything gets this magical touch and new perspective.

Photography style

But there’s more: this self-taught photographer moved to New York City to work for an agency, but decided to freelance first. During this year, she has developed the style she is known for now. Besides putting things in perspective through filled glasses, her style is characterized by different compositions as well.

Mostly, her work consists of an object randomly found in her house or at the super market and a bunch of differently shaped glasses.

Creative motivation

What motivates photographer Suzanne Saroff a lot, is that she wants her viewers to gain new perspectives on everyday objects. She wants to tell stories with her abstract and balanced photos. The compositions have to touch the viewer and make them think about his everyday life. It should make you look differently to everything around you and make you realize that everything is in motion. It’s just a matter of perspective. This way of thinking makes her images caught your eye and evoke certain emotions. With the lightning she creates a setting and mood for the photos. Shadows make a photo feel very sunny, while the lack of shadows gives a certain winter feeling. Saroff plays with this to create different settings and evoke a wide range of feelings.

In her latest work, she plays less with glass, but more with special effects such as smoke and shadows. Lightning is key here as well. Compositions of fruits, flowers and veggies remain the centre of her work, but we also see some models posing in her photos. Lately she’s done a shoot for Manrepeller and shows human elements such as the touch of a hand in her compositions. However, her strong style does stay unchanged.

Overall, photographer Suzanne Saroff wants us to find new ways of interpreting reality. According to us, she definitely succeeds in doing so. Check out her work below.
