"At Owner's Risk"

Rush Creek Editions is proud to present a new boxed set of photographs by Susan Ressler

Susan photographed the Algonquian Indians in Quebec, Canada, in 1972. She lived in a tiny village with three families who virtually “adopted” her, sharing all they had despite their own meager circumstances. As a result, Susan’s pictures are intimate and caring, qualities rare for the social document.

The new boxed set showcases more than 30 striking images, accompanied by Susan’s own text. Never previously published or exhibited, she says the pictures lay hidden in a drawer for 35 years, tugging at her heart while she taught photography at university and pursued other fine art projects.

“At Owner’s Risk” is an edgy and personal journey. It explores issues that concern Native peoples’ lives then and now. It is unflinching, honest and often raw. The images have a terrible beauty and you will not forget them!

The portfolio includes the full suite of finely crafted archival pigment prints on rag paper, each measuring 16 x 20 inches. Created from high resolution digital scans of the original 1972 35mm negatives, the prints are housed in an elegant custom-made case suitable for museum and private collections.
