A departure from the world of the strictly literal.
In dreaming, things flow and blur one into the other.
Metaphors and symbols dance with the materials of
the mundane creating messages from the unconscious,
giving birth to images open to interpretation and spinning tales …
images evoking questions rather than merely stating the obvious.

PPF is pleased to have Susan Bein as juror for its Annual Juried Show. Susan Bein began photographing as a teen because she couldn’t draw what she could see in her mind’s eye. She took classes from Ansel Adams, Minor White, Aaron Siskind, Nathan Lyons and Paul Caponigro, using black and white film and large format cameras. After majoring in photography in college and teaching it she eventually became a graphic designer. When digital cameras came out their immediacy re-awakened her photographic muse, and when iPhones came out she fell in love with them as a creative tool.Her work has been included in many juried group shows and featured in four solo gallery exhibitions as well as in several private collections. She teaches classes in iPhone photography and Photoshop in Portland, Or.”
