“By the Face of God” is a throwback to Susan Worsham childhood memories. Growing up in Virginia Worsham, recognises her childhood with trips to cigarette factories and civil war battlegrounds. “As a young girl I could often be found holding a dixie cup full of Kool-Aid powder, with a few drops of water, making a sweet sugary paste for finger dipping”.- explains in her artist statement.
“By the Face of God,” photographic series are taking Susan Worsham back home. This series takes her beyond the backyards and trails of her youth. Those portraits deal with hospitality given to her by strangers, who has invited her to their homes to sit down listen to their stories. Those stories are hidden behind the portraits taken by Susan Worsham are are real, and not imagined by the literary greats of the south.
