Sue Dumke Images
My photography was born out of a desire to explore a moment frozen in time and to create a sense of connection between photographer, observer, human spirit and subject matter. From behind the lens my passion is ignited.
I started to photograph Buddhas in 1976 during my first visit to Asia. Since then I have developed an appreciation as both a photographer and collector of sacred Buddhas from around the globe.
I am currently working on a Floral Series, a compilation of exotic tropical floral images. These photographs represent another portrayal of beauty and simplicity with the feel and hint of elegance.
In the process of working on the Buddha and Floral Series, I discovered different printing techniques and surfaces to enhance each image. Metal materials make for a perfect combination of color, depth and quality unlike paper. The metal images are waterproof and UV protected, enabling diverse display opportunities. Both Buddha and Floral Series images can be incorporated into any interior or exterior space such as garden areas, spas, restaurants, reception areas, bedrooms, bathrooms, and alternative spaces.
These collections of photographs create a journey I invite you to explore through my eyes. It is my strong hope that the images will evoke spirit, light, energy and connection.
I am married and have two children, and have lived in Sun Valley for more than 25 years.
