Gary Marlou Suson grew up in the Illinois farming town of Barrington Hills. He discovered photography at age 12. You could say that Ansel Adams is his role model. He spent a lot of his child hood observing his work. At 16, he formed Gary Suson Photography and began shooting portraits for neighbors. When Gary was 17 he won a great award, he won the Kodak Medallion as part of the National Scholastics Art & Writing Awards. Two of his award-winning images were flown to New York City and put on display for 3 months at the World Trade Center. After one year of college he dropped out prematurely. His style was light. I like Susons work because he pays attention to detail in photographs and he gives the viewer a crisp image to look at.
Photo 2: This photo shows the balance of the small tower with the flag at the top. This photo also shows emotion because it resembles a sad time. It also shows how the firefighter at the bottom is experiencing a lot of pain from this. The quality of this image is nice because it shows all the bits and pieces of the photo. The center of interest in the photo is the small tower with the little american flag. The best thing about this image that interests me is the emotion that the photo gives.
