Suzanna Zak is an artist based in Los Angeles. Her practice combines photography, sculpture, and artist books. She is concerned with how we come to understand place. Zak employs a variety of strategies that point to the many expressions of a singular space. Often working with found objects including print ephemera, her collections depict a variety of representations focusing around a central locale. In addition, Zak runs the artist book press, Rock Bottom, where she publishes her own work and collaborates with other artists. Zak was the 2012 recipient of the Meyer Photography Traveling Fellowship and has exhibited at various spaces such as Kimberly-Klark (Queens), Center for Photography at Woodstock (New York), LAND&SEA (Oakland), GOLD (Los Angeles), Embassy (Los Angeles), Good Press (Glasgow, Scotland), Current Space(Baltimore), Sydney Gallery (Sydney, Australia), and Gether Contemporary (Copenhagen, Denmark). She is also an avid mushroom hunter and rock climber.
