Susan Weiss is a documentary photographer and art educator based in Vermont and San Francisco. Since receiving an MFA degree from the San Francisco Art Institute, her photography has been focused on documenting the human condition and street photography throughout the world. Her long term project Humanity In The Modern World
tells the stories of people doing humanitarian work in countries that need medical and other types of assistance including the refugee crisis in Lesbos and Berlin, military deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, medical intervention in Cambodia, the border crisis at El Paso/Ciudad Juarez and Vets returning to Vietnam to help others where they once fought, and other stories.
Exploring the human condition has been a theme in my work for many years. The photographic images tell stories of life, however complicated and messy it may be, and that we all share a common humanity.
