A native of Saguenay in Canada who grew up in the heart of Mother Nature, Sue Vo-Ho stands out as a photographer through her approach to memory and evanescence.
The melancholy of open spaces
Sue Vo-Ho finds her inspiration in the emptiness of nature or cities. Her preferred themes revolve around the desert, buildings, the ocean, urban landscapes and city walls and are tinged with a hint of melancholy.
Working with digital media and an argentic technique
Her very technical training in the use of argentic techniques has strongly influenced the way Sue Vo-Ho works with digital media today. As soon as a shot is taken, she has a very precise view of what will come out in post-production. Her photographs are often the result of superimposing argentic images that have been digitally reworked. For example, she often resorts to the digitisation of negatives.
Su Vo-Ho’s photographs have been published in numerous magazines such as Billboard Magazine, Voir and PhotoLife. Sue Vo-Ho is the co-founder of a collective of photographic artists called Visio, with which she has exhibited frequently in Quebec. Since 2010, she has been teaching photography at the Professional Training Centre in Lachine (Quebec).
