Photographer: Irene Suchocki-Eye Poetry

Monday, January 27, 2014


Talent excites me.

And it excites me for two reasons. It genuinely makes me so happy to witness someone else’s talent. And it also inspires something within me to tap into my own talents; learning, growing and expanding.

Creative energy is contagious.

Therefore whenever I stumble upon talent, I can’t help but want to share it with others, as I am today.

Last week I happened to discover the work of Canadian photographer, Irene Suchocki, over at Pinterest.

And when I landed on her page, the photographs literally took my breath away because they were a magical fusion of a photograph and a painting. I probably spent over 45 minutes viewing her photographs; not only on Pinterest, but also perusing Irene’s online shops. In fact, I admired her photographs so much that I created a board specifically for her on my own Pinterest page.

Here is an excerpt from Irene’s bio to give you an idea of what her photography is all about:

“In my photography I combine my love of travel and nature with a dreamlike aesthetic to create visual poems that evoke a sense of magic, delight, nostalgia and romance. I love great cities and have traveled to iconic places like Paris, New York, Venice and London. Through my photography I strive to communicate the sense of magic, delight, nostalgia and joy that I feel when I photograph a place or subject. I like to consider each of my photographs a little poem for the eyes.”

And that’s exactly what her photographs are…a poem for the eyes.

Her photographs lure you within the dreamlike images; allowing you to experience the dream for yourself.

I immediately contacted Irene to ask her if it would be okay to share her photographs on my blog and she graciously consented. Thank you, Irene!

Now I have to admit, I had a hard time picking these photographs because she has so many awesome ones to choose from. I had intended to share 10, but ended up sharing 12 because I couldn't narrow them down.

It is with great pride and excitement that I share with you the unique eye of Irene Suchocki.

And I have to say something about Canada. I have seen some of the most phenomenal talent come out of that country. Canada seems to birth and nurture a lot of creative energy.

Please enjoy these beautiful, poetic images. And dream...

    OMG where do I start. Loved these photographs, especially the London doorway (you might know) and the New York picture, and the roundabout that took my breath away, and the perspective of Italy etc etc. See my problem? I can't choose! Irene is an amazing photographer and I thank you for sharing her work.


    You have a Pinterest page? I tried it, got in a mess, and gave up.


    Happy Monday, and the rest of the week xx

    The horses! No, the door! No, no Iceland. Maybe Paris. I see what you mean Ron. They look like very wonderful paintings to me. Thank you for posting this!

  1. Bijoux said...:

    They are all beautiful, but what good fortune to be able to travel to all those places and experience it in person!

  1. Rob Lenihan said...:

    My goodness, Ron, these images are fantastic!


    They have a dreamlike quality to them. I'm so glad that you shared them with us.


    And you're so right-creative energy really is contagious, I'm going to make certain to look at Ms. Suchocki's Pinterest page. Take care, buddy, and have a great week!

    Love the flat-iron, fabulous photo.

  1. Denise said...:

    Oh Ron, these are all so beautiful! And I can see why you wanted to share Irene's talent. I've always wanted to go to France, so the ones of Paris made me swoon. So romantic. I also love the one of Italy and the laundry hanging out to dry. And the horses too!


    Thank you for sharing this today. I will be stopping by Irene's shops this week to see more of her work. Have a wonderful week, Ron!

    Goooooood morning Valerie!

    " See my problem? I can't choose! "

    HA! I know, that's exactly what I thought when I stumbled upon Irene's work - I couldn't CHOOSE!

    "...especially the London doorway (you might know)"

    I agree! Isn't that doorway exquisite? And the one of the London street looks like a scene from a movie set back in time!

    "You have a Pinterest page? I tried it, got in a mess, and gave up."



    Yes, I started a Pinterest page about 3 months ago and love it! I'm finding it a wonderful way to discover and share things online. I don't spend a lot of time there, maybe once a week.


    Thanks so much for stopping by, dear lady. Have a lovely week!

    It must be lovely to be able to travel to other countries to take these beautiful photos. I like the door, the horses and the bridge :)

  1. Ron said...:

    Hola Denise!

    Aren't they BEAUTIFUL???? The minute I stumbled upon Irene's work, I knew I had to share it.

    "I've always wanted to go to France, so the ones of Paris made me swoon. So romantic."



    Me too! And the one of Italy is so utterly charming to me because the laundry hanging out to dry!


    If you like the one of the horses, be sure to check out her shops because she has a series with horses. Faaaabulous!


    Much thanks for stopping by, girl. Have wonderful week too!

    Hey there Babs!

    "It must be lovely to be able to travel to other countries to take these beautiful photos."

    I know! Traveling to me is the best because you get to experience how different people live in different places; feeling and tasting the flavor.

    "I like the door..."



    Isn't that doorway breathtaking? It makes me want to walk through it.


    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend! Have a lovely week!


    X to you and Mo!

  1. Matt said...:

    Ron, your excitement in sharing this post comes through so strong. And I can understand why. These photographs are incredible! The one of the iceberg looks like a large quartz crystal. Wow, amazing! And the one of New York City is genius. I love the expansive and isolated feeling in #10.


    Irene is a talented lady for sure. What a great bio.


    Thanks for sharing, dude!

  1. Ron said...:

    Hiya Matt!

    "And I can understand why. These photographs are incredible!"

    Aren't they INCREDIBLE? As soon as I discovered them, I knew I had to share.

    "The one of the iceberg looks like a large quartz crystal. Wow, amazing!"

    HA! OMG...I thought the same thing....a HUGE crystal! And I adore the contrast of the blue and black.

    "Irene is a talented lady for sure. What a great bio."

    I agree. Her bio gives such a perfect description of what her images emanate - magic, delight, nostalgia and romance. Dreamlike.



    Thanks a bunch for stopping by, buddy. Have a most excellent week!

    Wow, these are exceptional. I am so glad you shared Irene's work here.


    And thanks for your kind words re: Canada. We do have our moments LOL.


    But the US has so many, many talented people too. And isn't it nice that thanks to the Internet we can share so much of that talent, wherever we are?


    Have a fab week Ron and again, thanks for this visual treat! ;-)

  1. Mark Petruska said...:

    I like these. Her photographs do have a certain dreamlike quality to them, soft and blurry and gentle, if you will. You can definitely tell she's got a trademark style about her.

    Thanks for sharing, Ron!

  1. Ron said...:

    Hey there Geraldine!

    Aren't they exceptional? Irene has a unique style/eye all her own.

    "And thanks for your kind words re: Canada. We do have our moments LOL."

    Some of my favorite actors/actress hail from Canada. And also, the movies that I've seen which are made in Canada are awesome. Canada has a wonderful talent pool of creative people.

    And yes, the US (and other countries) have talented people as well, I agree. However, I felt the calling to give a shout out to Canada. GO, Canada! :)

    "And isn't it nice that thanks to the Internet we can share so much of that talent, wherever we are?"

    The BEST! I LOVE the Internet because it connects us in a way that we can experience one another through the click of a mouse.

    Much thanks for stopping by, my friend. Have a super week!

    And OHMYGOSH! These photos are FABULOUS!

  1. Debbie said...:

    Beautiful photographs, Ron. Thank you so much for introducing us to Irene's gift -- creativity such as hers IS a gift, you know, and it's always encouraging to see someone so talented fully embracing her talent!

    Personally, I love the one of Jackson Square. It brings back so many memories of being down south. And I can't help but imagine what coming home to that lilac-draped door in London would smell like!

    Have a super Monday -- ((( you )))

  1. benzeknees said...:

    What a beautiful eye Irene has! I've never had any luck with photography but I can enjoy a good photo!

  1. Ron said...:

    Hey Benze!

    Isn't her eye beautiful? And I love how she is able to transport you INSIDE the image with such feeling.

    I'm just starting with my passion for photography, so it's inspiring for me to see the possibilities of what can be done with a photograph.

    Much thanks for stopping by, my friend. Have an awesome week!

    Hey there Debbie!

    "creativity such as hers IS a gift, you know, and it's always encouraging to see someone so talented fully embracing her talent!"

    Yes, and I couldn't have said that any better myself. And you can tell from her photographs that she LOVES what she does and has such a passion for it.

    "Personally, I love the one of Jackson Square."

    Yup...that one got me too! It's so romantic and dreamy. Makes you wanna be there and take a seat on that bench!

    "And I can't help but imagine what coming home to that lilac-draped door in London would smell like!"



    OMG, yes....can you only imagine how that would SMELL?


    SNIFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!

    These are such beautiful images. I especially like numbers 8 & 9 (New York City & Italy). Amazing!

  1. Ron said...:

    Hey there Meleah!

    ""Creative energy is contagious." --- It sure is!"



    Which is WHY l love to surround myself with talent that I admire. When I was still acting in the theater, I would always want to work with actors who I admired and respected - actors who I wanted to LEARN from.


    Yup...are't Irene's photos faaaaaabulous? I'm her new biggest fan - HA!


    Much thanks for stopping by, girl. Have a super week!

    Bingo! Me too! And one of these days I have GOT to get to Italy. But I'm afraid if I ever go, I'll never want to leave - HA!

    Ron, I could sit and stare at these images forever and see something different every time. It's like you said, Irene's pictures lure inside them. Her pictures are not only images, they're a whole experience. There is a lot of emotion within them and each one has a different feeling.


    Think my favorites are 4, 6 & 12. Hell, I like ALL of them!


    Irene is a very gifted lady. And thank you for sharing her with us. Great topic!

  1. Ron said...:

    Hey ho Robert!

    I sooooooo agree with you...every time you look the images you see something different because there is so much within each image - they're a dreamlike story.

    "There is a lot of emotion within them and each one has a different feeling."

    Definitely...there is a lot of emotion within them. The one of the Spinning Wheel is so fun and animated, while the one of the bridge in Paris has a totally different feel/emotion. That's why I love Irene's photographs!

    Ha! I felt the same way, I couldn't pick just 10, so I went for 12. And even that was hard.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, buddy, and I'm glad you enjoyed. I had so much fun putting this post together.

    Have a FAB week!

    "poem for the eyes."

    Holy shoot, you ain't kidding. Irene's quite the talent. Curious why her work isn't being featured in National Geographic or some other respectable publication. I mean, seriously, how can you not help but stare in amazement at some of her photographs? Beautiful doesn't even begin to cover it.

    Thanks for the link! I'm passing this on to a few other people right now!

  1. Ron said...:

    Aren't Irene's photos BEEEEAUTIFUL?? I'm her new #1 fan. And the funny thing about it is that she's been online for several years, only I just discovered her.

    Amen! Couldn't agree with you more!

    "Curious why her work isn't being featured in National Geographic or some other respectable publication."



    Actually, if you click on the second link (Eye Poetry Print Shop) and read her ABOUT page, you will see that she has had her work printed in several respectable publications.

    If you have a Hallmark store near you, I bought this awesome little password notebook that's alphabetical and has a line for password hints, too. It's called, Forgot your Password? Best $6.00 I ever spent!
