photographer + writer
Susannah lives in the historic city of Bath, England, where she uses analogue cameras to record the world around her and dreams in Polaroids every night. When she’s not chained to her Epson scanner she teaches people how to unravel, loves blogging, and is a certifiable bookworm.
photographer’s note: These Polaroids were shot during a recent weekend spent in London.

what inspires you about the change of seasons?
I find it difficult to let go of summer as the days shorten and move into autumn. I can appreciate the colours of the leaves and will take full advantage of them with my cameras in the coming weeks, but there is still a part of me that holds its breath until spring swings around again. Spring makes me insanely happy; autumn makes me wistful. I shall endure this new season with a constant stream of hot chocolate, vegetable stews and plenty of new books to devour.
what are three constants in your day?
- sparkling water
- burning incense
what’s your idea of the perfect early fall evening?
After a day of shooting photographs, shopping for vintage finds or drinking coffee with friends, I return home to a warm flat, a dog-eared book waiting to be read and/or kisses from someone special.
