Artist Statement – Susan Meyer

Living on the bank of the Hudson River is like having a front-row seat to a stage that is always in motion and constantly changing. This is true even in the winter, although you may have to slow down and get very close to notice.

From August 2022 to August 2023, I devoted myself to photographing the sunrise over the river every morning. While waiting for the first rays of sunlight to spill out from behind trees or clouds on the horizon, I made a practice of noticing subtle changes from one morning to the next: “The river is like this right now.” It was part of my meditation practice. There were so many possibilities to focus on, including: sounds, clouds, fog, wildlife, surface texture, reflection, and water level.

Most winters, there is a significant period when the entire surface of the river is frozen solid. However, that wasn’t the case during my yearlong project. For the most part, the river remained largely unfrozen, except for the areas near river’s edge. I zoomed in to notice intricate details and became fascinated with the changing ice formations. Often, I lingered long enough at the riverside to witness portions of the overnight ice formations become liquid again.

Wondering what the ice would look like brought me to the riverside even on mornings when the sky was too overcast for sunrise images. Photographing riverside ice became a project in its own right, adding to my pre-existing collection of such images.
