THE LAVA LADY,
Summer of 1999 was my first visual encounter. She walked on 12-inch platform shoes wearing couture fitting garments, which immediately caught my eye. Always walking at a snails pace, Susan was a known figure in Los Angeles and intrigued many. Beth Hartstein a Hollywood local shared Susan’s history with me and from then on every time we would run into her out came my Leica film camera.
As we repeatedly encountered Susan, she opened up and shared how the outfits were made and took a liking to our interest. I always spoke to her directly while taking pictures bringing out her true stylish energy. Susan was a person of few words and projected a interesting reclusive artistic energy.
For 9 years she would appear out of nowhere and has now disappeared as ethereally as she arrived.
Come and view my original and new photography works of this eccentric individual. Available on exhibit will be signed original prints, coffee table books, custom art pieces as well as 3 original purses of Suzan Strauss.
