A female fetish photographer embraced by the gay scene in the shortest possible time may well be called special, but it is exactly what happened in the past few years with Suzanne van de Laar. As Suus, she captured the hearts of many in the Dutch fetish scene by storm.
And rightly so, as her photographs stand out, are playful, beautiful in terms of atmosphere, and represent the many aspects of the fetish scene. In an extremely personal collaboration with her models, who can feel completely at ease, she creates unique and authentic images, from leather and rubber, to bondage and puppies, on location and in the studio.
She can also be found (often in a fantastic outfit) at fetish events to create atmospheric images that stay with you for a long time. In short: A photographer you can no longer ignore.
This was also apparent during Leather Pride in Antwerp, where she won the Public Award in the MorePixx photo competition.
Restaurant Getto thought it was time for an exposition. The photographs of Suus can now be seen in the context of Bear Pride, from February 26 to April 17 at Getto, Warmoesstraat 51, Amsterdam, www.getto.nl.
