Suzanne Szasz, (1915–1997) a prolific photographer and photo-journalist during the second half of the twentieth century, was born in Budapest, Hungary and emigrated to the United States after World War II. By the mid-fifties her photo reportage was represented in most of the major American magazines including Life, Look, Parents, Good Housekeeping, McCalls, the Ladies Home Journal, Smithsonian, and Family Circle. In 1959 she was voted one of the top ten women photographers in the United States by the Professional Photographers of America. She was a founding member of the American Society of Magazine Photographers, and and enthusiastic advocate for Minolta cameras. She developed her own projects and was the author of many books including Photographing Children, Modern Wedding Photography, Sisters, Brothers and Others (with Elizabeth Taleporos), and The Silent Language of Children (with a foreword by Dr. Benjamin Spock). Her book The Silent Miaow with Paul Gallico became a popular choice for lovers of felines, and a Book of the Month Club selection. After she created a photo essay of Edward Steichen for Life Magazine, he praised her as “one of the outstanding documentary photographers of our time” with a “sharp and understanding vision and quick trigger-finger.”
