Susan Unterberg is a New York-based photographer. Her work is primarily color photographs taking the form of portraiture, human and animal, most recently manifested as digital photocollages and artist books which take into account contemporary politics.
Her work has encompassed video installation, book form, and large and small format color prints. In 2018, Unterberg stepped forward as the founder and sole funder of the Anonymous Was A Woman Award, which has awarded $25,000 grants to over 230 women-identifying artists over the age of 40 since 1996.
Political Thinking: Digital Images and Books is on view in the Barney Building (3rd Floor) for the NYU Community from March 31 - May 5, 2022.
The work of women artists makes up only three to five percent of major museums' permanent collections in the US and Europe. Many of these artists struggle financially - but Susan Unterberg is trying to change that.
