    Malcolm Lobban

In the afternoon light two friends enjoy the privacy of the 'salon' , sharing time and secrets with each other - but are they just friends, or is there more to their relationship? “ In my pictures, you never know, that’s the mystery. It’s just a suggestion and you leave it to the audience to put what they want on it. It’s fashion in disguise.” - Deborah Turbeville

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, 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 Richard Avedon, Lillian Bassman, Peter Lindbergh, Irvin Penn, Deborah Turbeville, and Sarah Moon
