Her images, utilized in teaching and research institutions in America, Canada, Europe, and Australia, have been published in professional books and journals. Her photographs have been exhibited throughout America and Europe and are included in public and private collections worldwide. “I have been intrigued by the ambiguities of openings and passages—natural and constructed—transitional zones which one can physically and spiritually transcend. Canyons, rivers and plains hold the same fascination for me: rock walls and rushing water, expansive vistas and brilliant skies, shifting light and ephemeral reflections. These places nurture the soul. I hope that my photographs transmit some of their spirit.” (Dr. Susan Silberberg-Peirce)
