Mark Lipczynski works in the documentary visual language with an emphasis on sentimental attachment to place. Using analog and digital photographic processes, he explores the influence geographic and cultural landscapes have on the relationship between memory and identity.
His connection to photography began in his youth growing up in the industrial northeast Ohio, where he watched trains and documented them using a cheap, plastic film camera. This pastime evolved into a career in photography, starting as a photojournalist out of college. He remains an avid train buff, seen here by the tracks near his current home in the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona.
