 “I offer these images for repose from the challenges of daily life,” Cori explains. “A reminder to stop, to consciously see, to contemplate, and to appreciate the “extra-” that can be found in the ordinary, if we only take the time to look.”

Drawn to the simple harmony of architectural structures and natural forms, Surano offers viewers the opportunity to contemplate quiet landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes instead of illness, injury or disease. 

She says of her work, “…it’s more about the eye looking through the lens and less about the technology (the camera).”

Cori Surano was born and raised in New Castle, and currently resides in Hermitage, Pa. with her husband and three cats.  Her work has been selected for local, regional and national juried exhibitions, and is currently on display in local galleries and area businesses.  Photography by Cori Sorano is part of a continuing partnership between the Hoyt Center for the Arts and Jameson Health System to explore the on-going relationship between art, medicine and healing for patients, caregivers and medical personnel.
