WK 3 – Artist Interview – Jesse Lubben

IMG_3279IMG_3280Jesse Lubben discovers the world through his camera. A great influence for his work comes from anthropologist, natural science writer, and philosopher, Loren Eiseley, whom he came across while online.

I found Jesse’s work interesting because it isn’t just photography. According to his show’s description, Jesse creates his pieces by cutting, folding, and sculpting phogotraphic prints of the imagery that he has captured and then re-photographing them. He sometimes repeats the process. I have never seen photography like this before!

IMG_3282IMG_3286Jesse is a really cool guy. Definitely worth getting to know. We talked a little bit about tattoos and he showed me his amazing forearm piece that really captures his artistic spirit. I greatly admire his work and his inspiration. The way Jesse observes the world and creates something interesting and new from something that may have been overlooked has really resonated with me.  I hope to continue following his work throughout his artistic career.
