Vancouver artist Susan Bozic's first published work is The Dating Portfolio (SFU, 2008), a compilation of a series of photos by the same name. The works were exhibited at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery in early 2007, at the Rodman Hall Arts Centre at Brock University in late 2007, and at Simon Fraser University in January and February of 2008.

The photographs from The Dating Portfolio feature Bozic and an emotionless male mannequin, captured in iconic scenes from an idealized relationship. From a movie theatre, to sidewalk cafe, to the tennis court, Bozic's sweet smile is contrasted by her plastic partner's inevitably empty stare.
