Susan Magaziner’s practice is focused on photography and the inclusion of the ancient use of beeswax and resin fused with pigment, a technique that obscures the boundary between photography and painting.
Magaziner’s work has been published by various media outlets, most recently for the 911 Memoria Project as well as her documentary coverage relevant to social justice aspects of her practice. Magaziner’s portrait of John Kerry and her work “Flawed”, an encaustic work depicting the joylessness of black and white thinking was featured as the exhibition catalogue cover for “Black & White”, Washington, D.C.
Magaziner has been awarded by the Women’s Caucus for Art of Greater Washington, D.C., Connecticut Land Conservation Council, Fairfield Museum and History Center, The Connecticut River Valley Land Trusts and most recently was awarded “Best in Show” by judge Debbie Hesse in a juried exhibition at Rowayton Arts Center and received an Honorable Mention from the Boyer Foundation of NY in an international photography competition. Magaziner is a Board Certified Civil Rights and Education Advocate and holds a B.A. from Lehigh University and an M.A. from MSU. She has studios in Bedminster, NJ and Essex, CT.
