Photographer Sussie Ahlburg's body found in Hampstead pond
7 August 2013

IP is sad to report that the immensely talented photographer
Sussie Ahlburg has died.
Ahlburg, 50, was found in the ladies’ bathing pond on
Hampstead Heath, north-west London on Monday. She had gone swimming on Sunday and was
reported missing by her family when she did not come home.
The BBC has reported that the death is being treated as
‘unexplained’ and that police are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen
Ahlburg at the pond on Sunday.
Ahlburg’s distinctive portraits were widely used in
the classical music press. Her work frequently appeared in the pages of IP, and
she photographed many pianists including Ashley Wass, Benjamin Grosvenor, Nick
Van Bloss, Imogen Cooper, Nino Gvestadze and Peter Donohoe.
