Sue Lezon Art

Associate Professor of Art

Sue Lezon got her first camera at the age of twelve, and has rarely been without one since that time. Her interest in image making, combined with a love of ancient history and travel, has taken her around the world as an archaeological photographer for over twenty-five years. She is also passionate about being an educator and teaches beginning, intermediate and advanced photography at Plattsburgh.

Sue received her B.F.A. from Emerson College in Boston, and her M.F.A. in Fine Art Photography from the University of Massachusetts/Hampshire College in Amherst. She is currently making silver gelatin prints from negatives shot with Holga and Diana cameras during recent archaeological work in Egypt.
