nine {with susan tuttle}

Nine is an interview series with creative folks; the interviewees are asked to respond to the questions in photographs.

Today's interview is with the kindred spirit Susan Tuttle. I was lucky enough to meet Susan last year at Squam, and her writing and photography have captivated me ever since.


Question 1: Who are you?

Question 2: What do you love about where you live?

Question 3: What might your perfect afternoon look like?

Question 4: If you had an hour alone in your studio/creative space, what would you do?

Question 5: Right now, what are some of your favorite things?

Question 6: What foods nourish your soul?

Question 7: When you need to simply take a breath and reground yourself, what do you do?

Question 8: How do you nurture your creative dreams?

Question 9: Does your heart have a secret wish you want to share?
