197 – A Fly On The Wall With Susana Millman

NSR_Susana_16x9

We are extremely honored this week on No Simple Road to welcome Susana Millman as our guest! Around 25 years ago, Susana Millman became a Bay Area photographer. In the spirit of her love for bad puns, she dubbed herself “mamarazi,” although she’s certainly more benign than the paparazzi. Best known for her photography of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead from the mid-1980s on through later incarnations, she’s also spent a significant proportion of her professional life shooting dance (the Mark Morris Dance Group), travel (especially Asian religious architecture), events (the 50th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge) and interiors, as sampled in this site’s galleries.

She and her husband Dennis McNally live in San Francisco, where they enjoy time spent with their daughter, Season Korchin, her husband Jono, and their grandsons, Julian and Elias. She is involved with a variety of progressive causes and works with two international programs that support literacy , Caravan to Class in Mali, and 100 schools in Myanmar.

We talk to Susana about the magic and mystery of the Grateful Dead, what makes the Grateful Dead so special, why she loves seeing life through the eye of a camera, what it was like being a fly on the wall with the band beyond description, and a whole lot more!
