Gloria Suess [1932-2010]
Gloria E. M. Suess (1932-2010) lived in Israel for several years. The amazing multitude and variety of Israeli wildflowers inspired Suess to start photographing all she could find. As volunteer secretary, editor and artist for the Institute of Holy Land Studies in Jerusalem, she was able to accompany the students on their field trips throughout Israel at various seasons of the year. Started in 1987, Suess' slide collection of Israeli flora included thousands of photos. These images have been digitized and published by BiblePlaces.com.
