If you ask me, I will tell you that I have always been a photographer. Although photography has not been my primary career, it has always been a driving passion and has played a major role in my experiences and adventures (and they are many).
My images are about my passions: the people, places and moments that touch my soul. My camera is a part of me and I shoot all the time. I enjoy portraiture, street photography, landscape, and botanicals but basically shoot whatever catches my eye, (which is everything). I am a people-watcher and have always been interested in people, who they are, what they do, how they look, where they’re going, etc. Maybe knowing that I had a full time career as a social worker will explain more of my art and who I am. I have been told that I am a voice for those that cannot speak for themselves and I feel that I am a social worker with a camera. My camera is my voice.
At this time I am fully engrossed in “the passion and energy of the lunatic iphonic art movement.” (Knox Bronson)
"Marian Rubin is something of a phenomenon. She displays a lower case contempt for "equipment," for "gear," meaning Rolls Royce cameras and whatnot, recently did an entire book with an Iphone. She knows where really stands the news. I mean, look at the face, the hand. As Shane said of Jack Wilson, "he was fast; he was fast on the draw." Well, Shane was faster, but he never met Marian Rubin." John Dinwiddie Aug.3, 2013
