Bennett’s Journals

“It’s like so much of who Sue was, was her handwriting” -Kristen Iwai

Journaling was a large part of Bennett’s life. Constantly writing, Bennett recorded conversations, collected small mementos, and explored complex feelings towards herself and work. Bennett chronicled much of her adult life, providing unique insight to her photographic process. Bennett’s signature handwriting fills the pages of her journals, which eventually became iconic to the Sue Bennett brand. She even made her own font so employees could send “personalized” letters to her valued clients.
