Susan Paulsen: WilmotSusan Paulsen: Wilmot

Published by Steidl.

Wilmot is a little town in Ashley County, in southeast Arkansas. Its main street--US Highway 165--runs north-south on the east side of a railroad track, raised on a bed several feet above the highway itself. Once a town reliant on agriculture and cotton production, the growth of mechanized farming in the 1950s and 1960s and the arrival of mass retail in the 1970s made people leave Wilmot just as in other rural areas of the U.S. Susan Paulsen based her series on Wilmot on texts written and transferred to her by her cousin Mary Currie and sees it as a metaphor for the American agricultural south in general. At the same time it represents a visual archive of the liveliness of the town's former times, depicting many buildings that do not exist anymore today or are derelict. As her relative George T.M. Shackleford puts it: "Paulsen has created photographs that have resonance for anyone who looks at them. That resonance comes not from some abstract language of forms seen in nature and captured in her lens, or from a series of facts gathered and arranged in a dispassionate order. That resonance comes not in spite of her involvement with the subject but because of it."

Susan Paulsen: Sarah Rhymes with ClaraSusan Paulsen: Sarah Rhymes with Clara

Published by Steidl.
Contributions by Vicki Goldberg.

Susan Paulsen's theme in this book is her daily life--family, friends, her surroundings and the nude, in locations including Westchester, Block Island and Mabou. Yet as much as Paulsen's images explore her existence now--children playing Scrabble, freshly cut roses, frolicking dogs--they also concern memory and family history. Paulsen's color palette is quiet and her subjects sometimes subtly blurred, creating effects that hark back to her training as a painter. And just like much still-life painting, Sarah Rhymes with Clara is a revelation of the poetic in the seemingly banal. As William Meyers wrote of one of Paulsen's images in the Wall Street Journal, the picture is so casual, so free of gimmicks, it seems to have taken itself, which is precisely the hardest of artistic accomplishments.
Susan Paulsen was born in Milwaukee in 1957, and now lives and works in New York. Paulsen holds a Bachelor of Arts from Ohio Wesleyan University. Her solo exhibitions include an acclaimed show at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris in 2004. Steidl has also published her Tomatoes on the Back Porch (2004).
