For the past 39 years I've been known as Boston Globe staff photographer Suzanne Kreiter. It's been more than a job: it's been my identity, my craft, my easel and my mission.

The Globe has sent me around the globe and has allowed me to dive into deep and difficult stories in New England and in my own neighborhood. I find my own stories based on the things that I'm passionate about, and the things that make me angry and give me hope. 

Suzanne Kreiter

Suzanne Kreiter joined the photography staff of The Boston Globe in 1985. During her 39-year-career as a photojournalist, she has traveled extensively and covered events ranging from the Nicaraguan civil war to pollution behind the Iron Curtain to the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest. In 2018, she won First Place in the seventy-fifth annual Pictures of the Year International competition for her coverage of the last group of Syrian refugees to come to Boston.

In 2007, Suzanne was awarded the American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE) Community Service Journalism Award for her photo column, The CitySeen, that chronicled Boston’s less visible characters. In 1992, Suzanne was awarded the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for Outstanding Coverage of the Problems of the Disadvantaged for her photo essay illustrating the disparate lives of a group of mentally disabled adults living in a group home and those living in a large institution.

Suzanne originated the Boston Globe’s first photo column in 1996 with a two-year project in which she documented the daily travails of the Boston Police. Suzanne has been twice recognized as the Boston Press Photographer’s Association Photographer of the Year.

She lives outside of Boston with her husband, author and professor Mitchell Zuckoff. She has two grown daughters.
