Ep. 92: Suzie Strong is an award-winning, Los Angeles-based
photographer and director. In her photography work, she
specializes in creative portraits and fashion. She directs
and shoots feature films, short narratives, music videos,
experimental shorts, promos and fashion shorts.
Suzie also has a fascinating multiracial heritage, with Lebanese, German, Irish, English, Spanish, & Native American roots. Interestingly, her family immigrated to the United States through New Orleans, rather than Ellis Island, and her family culture and traditions mainly reflect the culture of New Orleans which Suzie calls "a beautiful quilt of many types of people." She adds: "Our home was always a southern island on the west coast. We also honored our Lebanese background with lots of Lebanese cooking!"
Listen as Suzie explains her Lebanese (and other) roots and the juxtaposition of those with New Orleans culture. And, hear how her ancestry and heritage have informed her life and work.
