Mark Lipczynski is an American photographer who works in the documentary visual language with a curiosity for sentimental attachment to place and time. Using analog and digital photographic processes, he explores the influence geographic and cultural landscapes have on his relationship to memory and identity.
His connection to photography, and place, began in his youth, growing up in the industrial northeastern Ohio rust belt, where he regularly watched and photographed trains, but kept it largely private, which spurred the creation of his alter ego, Mark Traain (see link below).
Photographing trains eventually inspired Mark to become a newspaper photographer out of college. He remains an avid train buff, and can often be found waiting for a train by the tracks near his home in the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona.
