Photographs by Leonard Sussman, the deputy chair for art in the Fine and Performing Arts Department of Baruch’s Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, are being shown as part of the exhibit: “1907-2007, Cent’Anni in Viaggi per Torino” (100 Years of Public Transportation in Turin) in Turin, Italy.
Sussman’s photos were taken during 2006 at the invitation of Gruppo Trasporto Torinese (GTT), the Turin equivalent of the MTA. The exhibit runs through early January 2008.
As a fine-art photographer who has photographed the Italian landscape for many years, Sussman has recently returned to capturing the urban scene, and is currently working in digital color as well as black and white. Previous projects have included lower Manhattan, the New York subway system, and the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. Sussman has had exhibits at the Witkin Gallery in New York, as well as in numerous other venues including recent one-person exhibits in Berlin, Lyon, Rome, and New York City. His work is in many permanent collections including the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; the Brooklyn Museum; Citicorp, New York; the Gund collection in Boston: and the Italian Foundation for Photography in Turin. Seventy of his photographs of Sardinia were combined with selections of Sardinian poetry in his monograph Sardinia, which was published in Sardinia in 2000.
