Canyonlights' Dr. Susan Silberberg-Peirce has been photographing the ancient and natural worlds for thirty years. Her images, utilized in teaching and research institutions worldwide, have been published in professional books and journals. Her fine art photographs have been exhibited and are included in public and private collections worldwide. Susan attended UCLA where she studied art and art history, receiving her Ph.D. in Greek and Roman art. Throughout her years as a student and instructor, she was interested in photography and utilized her own images in the classroom and for publication. She taught art history for eighteen years at universities in Arizona and Colorado and in both places, photographed architecture, archaeological sites and the natural world. She received various grants and fellowships during her years as a professor that allowed her to travel and document historic architecture and ancient sites abroad and in the American Southwest. Canyonlights World Art Image Bank grew out of the collections of slides taken during this period. Her experience working at the Photo Archives of the Getty Center for the Arts and Humanities helped her to organize her own archive that today supplies images to scholars, libraries and universities worldwide.
