Window & Couch ( Shadow & Light )

  • Photographer
    Malcolm Lobban

With their attention to the physicality of light, and by contemplating the simple beauty of the female figure, the portraits are not intended to capture personality or emotion but rather to serve as a vehicle for the visual explorations into light, form, and composition.

Born in 1959, Malcolm is an architect with a passion for photography. As a student studying architecture he was drawn to the black and white street photography in Paris and New York City from the 30’s-60’s in particular the photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sophie Calle, Raymond Depardon, and Robert Doiseau. While studying photography at the Ontario College of Art and Design and the Ryerson School of Image Arts, he became interested in the black and white fashion/portraits/fine art photographs of Lillian Bassman, Imogen Cunningham, Peter Lindbergh, Irvin Penn, & Deborah Turbeville.
