About Artist

Derry Lubell

People fascinate me. I have always been curious about what makes them tick and how they cope with the world. For many years I worked as a psychotherapist, helping traumatized people learn to deal with their emotions. We used words to help them connect their body and soul. Then after an absence of 20 years, I again picked up a camera. I still wanted to be dealing with people, but now I wanted to express visually what I knew verbally - I wanted to replace words with images. In the process, I discovered that as a mature adult, I am even more in love with the photographic process then I was in my early days with film. I always have been drawn to photographing active people who use actions instead of words to express themselves - people who use physicality to communicate and tell their story. With the camera, I translate their narrative, the story that they want and/or need to tell us, into an accessible and universal language. The photo provides a way for the photographer, model and viewer to connect with each other. Taking and sharing photographs connects me in a very tangible way with the people and world around me. I find the process deeply satisfying and endlessly appealing.
