Susan Portnoy - The Insatiable Traveler


I am a mid-western girl, who’s pretty much a New York native after years in the concrete jungle. I adore traveling – almost anywhere will do – but I tend to gravitate towards exotic destinations with authentic cultures, wild animals or remnants of ancient civilizations. In short, Machu Picchu, Myanmar and Africa are high on my list of places I love. About 5 years ago, photography became an integral part of my travels. Whether on the far side of the planet, or on the boardwalk of Coney Island, capturing the moment, nailing that perfect shot (I haven’t yet, by the way), has become an addictive artistic challenge and a new kind of adventure, all in one.
