On Waking Dreams and Other Twilight Visions
On Waking Dreams and Other Twilight Visions - photographs by Susan Burnstine at Soulcatcher Studio. "...Susan's love for photography began at the age of eight when her mother gave her a vintage camera to play with. She was instantly hooked. While working as a professional photographer, Susan started shooting and modifying inexpensive, plastic toy cameras for fun. Within less than a year, Susan's work was exhibited in galleries, magazines and contests. In Spring 2005, she started building her own homemade cameras and lenses, primarily made out of plastic, vintage camera parts and random household objects. Burnstine currently has around twenty homemade cameras that she uses to create these dreamlike, metaphoric images. Most have cost her less than forty dollars in parts and a few have cost nothing since they were created from random, found parts or parts of toys she 'acquired' from unsuspecting children."
