Join us on Gallery Row in the famed Charleston Historic District for an enchanting evening of fine art at the Mary Martin Gallery! This April, we proudly present the underwater photography of Suzanne Barton.  Suzanne is one of Florida's most sought after photographers. She possesses the innate ability to capture a moment that will be cherished for a lifetime.   While frequently referred to as an emotionally intuitive photographer, she takes pride in projecting an unobtrusive persona onto her work.  Join us as we welcome Suzanne Barton to our Charleston gallery on Friday, April 7th 2017 5-8 PM.

“My ‘Tiny Dancer Underwater Art Series’ began as a yearning to experience underwater photography.  The grace and fluidity of movement, the soothing quiet and calm beneath the surface, along with the weightless suspension, as my subject floated to the surface, left me transformed.” – Suzanne Barton

Modern technology has opened doors for new-age photography.  After extensive underwater photography sessions with specialized photography equipment, careful editing, and selection of the perfect image, fine art techniques are added and the image is then committed to a special metallic substrate for display with an archival mount.  The archival "C-Type" image is made by exposing light onto a special metallic substrate (which has a metallic sheen or "pearl-essence), giving the image an extra "pop".
