Susan R. Wacker-Donle


I have worked as a professional Art Director in New York City & Boston for the past 25 years having held creative positions at Elizabeth Arden, L'Oreal, & P&G Gillette. Best known for the creation of fragrance packaging for Elizabeth Taylor’s White Diamonds, Sun Moon Stars for Karl Lagerfeld, & Bond no. 9.  Graduated from Pratt Institute with a Bachelor’s of Fine Art & an additional Certificate in Computer Generated Design.
 
My photography has been published in "Fragrances of the World" by Michael Edwards,  exhibited in local shows, & selling prints locally. Recently, I have launched my first photography website, susanrwackerphotography.com, showcasing current work
as well as a blog, srwdesignotes.blogspot.com, which focuses on "all things art and design". 

I am constantly stopped and amazed by the beauty around me. The way the morning sun lights up the sky, the color of a Canadian Day Lilly along side a dirt road, water falling from ledges of rock. Photography gives me a way to capture these fleeting moments…to share with the viewer what I see at different points in time.

Pratt Institute gave me the opportunity to study photography. I spent many hours in the dark room developing black & white prints. After college I started shooting color, focusing on vibrancy & light. Today I shoot color as well as having returned to black & white images of nature. Black & white photography has recently grown in popularity once again. I love the contrast of darks & lights; this appeals to my graphic design background.
