Susan Bock is a specialist in hand coloring her own black and white photographs and historic images. She has been working as a photographer for over 30 years in both Virginia and California where she displayed much of her work along the famed Cannery Row in Monterey and in Carmel art shows. Susan’s work involves taking a black and white photograph, printing the images on a special photographic paper, and applying a special transparent oil mixture to the surface. The results bring to life the details and realism of the image in a unique way, not achieved through the process of color film. In her historic collection, each photograph has first been carefully restored, removing blemishes, scars, spots and deterioration before the image is printed and ready for hand-tinting.
