Cyle Suesz has resided in Charleston for 3 years and has been an important figure in the visual arts community. Suesz moved to Charleston from Sumter, to pursue a degree in photography at The Art Institute of Charleston. Suesz comments that growing up in the south has brought a humble approach to photography and he looked to Charleston as the city to find inspiration, mentors, and to assist in building his portfolio. He completes his B FA Degree in Photographic Imaging in March 2012.
Suesz did not hesitate to take risks and jump at any experience he could get his hands on. He attended The Eddie Adam Workshop in New York City in 2010 and has assisted in photographing for numerous fashion projects and look books, such as Charleston Fashion Week 2010 & 2011, New York Fashion Week, & Cavortress. He also began an independent magazine, VENT, which he attributes his knowledge of being detailed oriented and realizing the importance of presentation and efficiency. Most of his work has been large-scale projects such as building instillation's for series and working with Fashion and models. Suesz understands that working in an industry that is difficult to distinguish oneself from another, that is important to work toward creating stories and photographs that show and evoke emotion. He often uses varied techniques and objects to tell his stories and keep his work versatile. Suesz continues to strive to redefine himself every day and states, “ I look at each detail in a fresh way to make the overall picture something thoughtful.”
