Susan Johnson, a member of Unbound Visual Arts, attended The Art Institute of Boston studying Fine Art and Photography, then went on to work at several Boston professional photo labs for 15 years doing custom color and black and white darkroom work. She also owned and operated her own custom photo lab in Cambridge for 9 years. After changing careers, getting two Associates Degrees and becoming an X-ray Technician, Susan couldn't help but feel something was missing. And so, returning to the creative world became a pull too strong to resist. Even after being forced to trade the darkroom for digital, the basic proven rules of that darkroom are still followed in the production of her final images. Susan is also a member of the Cambridge Art Association, the Arsenal Center for the Arts, Salem Art Association, Brush Gallery in Lowell, and the Rocky Neck Art Colony. She has been included in several group and solo exhibitions and has participated in both the Cambridge and Allston Open Studios.
