Biography Sue Smith
Adelaides Sue Smith Photography (ASSP)
Recipient of multiple international awards in photography, watercolours and computer-created art
Sue was born in the early 50’s in Germany. Since early childhood she was fascinated to scroll through photo albums, artwork magazines and watching her daddy working in the darkroom.
Sue was four years old as she got her first camera and after being back from photowalks with her father, an architect and engineer, she couldn’t await being in the darkroom and seeing him developing her work. It seems she did well as her daddy began to teaching her proper in photography and the development of her works. This times were the foundation stone of Sue’s career when she decided to set her focus for earning a living on Architectural, Industrial and Aerial Photography.
One station in her working life was freelance photojournalist (newspapers, youth magazines). One of her concert photographs got album cover of a then popular music star. This years intensified the stories her photos was -and are- telling.
Carefree times followed times where Sue had to realise that life is ‘no walk in the park’, private events made it impossible doing good photos so she was again creating paintings as a better outlet to cope through the times of grief.
Despite some deep hits one thing since her early years has never changed: her passion for the beauty of the world around us which she shows us in her photographs and paintings, but she also does not hesitate to capture also environmental and humanity problems in her photos.
What also hasn’t changed is her sense of justice, caring for the people around her, the sick, the handicaped, the ones with mental health problems, the youth.
She is a narrator, a dreamer, a thinker, and when her works make viewers to slow down, seeing, recognising, feeling emotions, relating their own stories, Sue has reached her goal.
Until her semi-retirement in January 2018 Sue owned the ASSP Gallery Port Adelaide. She had in 2016 two 8-weeks solo exhibitions, several displays. 2018 was the first time participating in the SALA Festival as an exhibitor instead providing the venue space.
Sue supervised very successful for a 2016 Artshow the installation of more than 550 artworks in different styles and sizes.
