Susana López is a visual artist from Gijón (Spain). 

   Susana likes to tell stories. She uses her camera as a society's witness and gives it the freedom, being the pen that writes her diary. Consumerism, social differences, migration or simply spontaneous thoughts have involved her series in contexts along different cultures around the world. We can be identified with her message because is direct, easy and makes to reflect the viewer about what is happening around, and appreciate the quotidian small things.
