Le dos D'Une Femme

  • Photographer
    Malcolm Lobban

Playing with light, the photographs give the woman’s body a sort of depth, density and texture. Curves which escape and spill out into melodies, or into spiralling arabesques and curved lines, studies of curvatures and creases, hands and forearms folded over supple skin – painted by the light.

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.
