About my photography

More often than not, I am interested in creating photographs that express our subjective experiences.

I am trying to remind or invoke in you, the viewer, what you can see through your own imagination: associations, states of mind, perceptions of various forms of beauty, and allusions to spirit and the sublime (however you understand or experience it).

For example, the photograph immediately below reminds me of a feeling of expansiveness and of seeing the world afresh. Naturally for you and every other person the associations will tend to be different.

Critique

In a 2014 critique of the Light and Light and Water series of photographs, the painter / photographer Barry Oretsky, R.C.A. wrote:

It is with pleasure and confidence that I would like to recommend Mr. Lubo Cipin as a unique creative visualist whose voice will add I'm sure to our pictorial lexicon. His commitment to his art will without doubt sustain and enrich not only his spirit but that of the art continuum to which he surely belongs. I wish him much success and strength on this worthy calling.
