ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHER SUSIE LILLEY
Details are Lilley’s specialty. She loves structure and perspectives, the play of light and shadow, the interaction of lines, depth, and textures. She’s found a wonderful world along the Ohio River front in the parks of Cincinnati, Ohio that are full of inspiring content to explore. Geometry and architecture is a mainstay in the back of her mind as she scrutinizes the landscapes and play among the shapes, sharing with the viewer a sense of interaction with the contours and contrasts of our environment that goes unnoticed.
Queen City Parks is the first in a series of solo shows by members of Artists of Rubber City that will be presented in 2020.
