I have only now discovered your portfolio, and I am totally blown away by your work. It is one of the finest, most comprehensive collections that I have ever seen. In any subject matter.

I would suggest that you find a publisher, and write a book about your years in China, illustrated by your photos. It would be magnificent. And I would buy the first copy.

With the utmost respect and admiration,


F. Diamond , June 02, 2007; 10:25 P.M.

I agree with Glenwood. Your portfolio is incredible. Emily

Robert Fazekas , October 07, 2007; 01:48 A.M.


Your portfolio is great, but... a friend of me it was say "High performance tourism". in 25% is your wor. Your portrait is 7/7 but the strret or arhitectural photos - in my point of view - is all avarege. Excuse me my pour Enghlish, this is my best I have... :) I want to see your works in the future, and I apreciate your photos.

ravi prabhakar , October 11, 2007; 01:33 A.M.


Wonderful portfolio. I am yet to come across more interesting "faces" in one place in photonet. However, I do have a few observations: the difference between your exceptional and not-exceptional photos is the simplicity of the photo. wherever you have been able to simplify the frame, it turns out really beautiful. For that reason, your b&w folder is one of your best. Also some of the captures where you have simply concentrated on the subject, leaving the clutter out. Again, that might be only because you were out with your everyday camera that day ;-).

Really enjoyed your pics.


Carlos Cass , October 22, 2007; 05:55 A.M.

It is a superb work, it has much quality, for my is the best one of those than I have seen on Asia, reflects perfectly what is that one?

Congratulations Susan

Vladut Ciprian , November 14, 2007; 04:42 A.M.


You have a great, varied and rich portfolio. Must have spent a lot of time do do it. Wish I'll have the time to do the same...

Michael Ging , November 17, 2007; 12:16 A.M.

Well , I am back for more. The photos from China want me to go there and experence for myself what I have seen though you eyes. You have a great knowledge for subject and timing,as well as compostion. Thanks for sharing all your photos with us.

Theodore Mattas , November 22, 2007; 04:27 A.M.

Nuno Moura , February 02, 2008; 06:28 P.M.


Very nice shots...

Mira A , February 07, 2008; 11:16 P.M.

Wow, your portfolio seems to be full of soo much colour and culture, it must have been an amazing experience, judging from your great shots well done :)

Reva Rasmussen , February 19, 2008; 10:34 P.M.

Your Uyghur photos

Susan, I love all your photos, but the ones from Xinjiang are closest to my heart. I spent three years in China and traveled in Xinjiang with a Uyghur woman. These people face a lot of discrimination and have a well-founded fear of their culture being eradicated completely. You have helped preserve their lives.

I wrote a book about my travels and am constructing a website. I'm also starting a blog with short text and my own crappy but precious photos. I'd like to add a link to your photos as they say so much.

I am a writer, not a photographer and not a tech-savvy person, just committed to the 21st century way of doing things.

Reva, blog.revarasmussen.com

Jef Van den Houte , February 20, 2008; 07:20 A.M.


Your portfolio shows great images on Soutth-East Asia. Depicting the people in a strong, expressive way.

Marc Loiselle , February 24, 2008; 06:23 A.M.

Hi Susan!

Michael Murphy , March 17, 2008; 02:04 A.M.


What a magnificent portfolio. Your photos are an obvious tribute to your love of travel and the respect and admiration you have towards the different cultures you capture using your camera. You do it with grace and an obvious love of people's different cultures. I am impressed. Again, congratulations on such a wonderful and masterful portfolio.

George Pentzikis , March 19, 2008; 05:35 A.M.

I wish I could travel the way you do.

Amazing portfolio of documentary photography. Your work on different asian countries are very personal testimonies on the people and their daily life

Paloma Ramirez , April 15, 2008; 03:11 P.M.

I am impressed by your very eyes to human pictures. Portfolio filled with explosions of color.Regards

Peter Blum , May 04, 2008; 04:19 A.M.

Delightful and fascinating!

Hello Sue,

Absolutely delightful.

You do the images that I love to take as well. But yours are far more exotic, much more far-away and far more interesting.

There is lots of energy, life - and imagination, in your pictures. Depicting every day life is both fun but also quite demanding. Both technically, being at the right place at the right time, being fast as well as having the photographic eye. For it is in the details you see the things that are worth taking..

You have it all. What a fun to browse though your portfolio! Congrats!.

All the best to you


Meir Samel , May 04, 2008; 08:11 A.M.

i just got here from pakistan/ some job you've done

Ahmet Gurses , May 12, 2008; 12:42 A.M.

Pierre Villeneuve , July 18, 2008; 09:47 P.M.

what I feel

After looking and rating one of your photo in the critique forum I came and look at your work. It is hard for me to put in word what I feel when looking at your photos and portfolio. You do what is hard to do for me and that is to take picture of people. To be able to do so in a way that it is not voyeurism you have an eye and respect for people.

Tank you for sharing these precious moments Pierre

Philip Rollinson , August 16, 2008; 07:38 P.M.


I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the world through your photos. I like the way you incorporate people in your photographs. And your appreciation of colour.
