Susan Close is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Architecture and a Senior Fellow at St. John's College, University of Manitoba. Her book, Framing Identity: Social Practices of Photography in Canada (1880-1920), examines how Canadian women used photography as a social practice to establish identity. Close studies the photographic practice of four, turn-of-the-twentieth-century women photographers: Mattie Gunterman (1872-1945), Geraldine Moodie (1854-1945), Ruby Gordon Peterkin (1887-1961), and Etta Sparks (1879-1917).
