Mental Landscapes

Rachel Lipscomb experiments with intuitive photography

November 2nd, 2007 · Written by · No Comments

Rachel Lipscomb has been a photographer for six years. She knew instantly that it was her passion and applied for the Photographic Imaging Program at the community college in Lansing, MI. Since graduating, she’s done her share of traveling, shooting photos, and creating fine art.

“My more recent work is very intuitive,” says Lipscomb. “I am trying to communicate emotion and describe the mental environment.”

Her work embraces traditional photographic processes and digital formats, but she has also experimented in combining the two. Using a wide array of innovative darkroom techniques and Polaroid transfers she has begun dappling with a more avant-garde approach to her work.

Although Rachel focuses on fine art, she is also interested in documentary photography as a means to address social, political, and environmental issues.

“There is a sense of urgency these days. It seems like we need to get out there document it in whatever form of art, so we can change it or make others aware,” she says. “We only have a short time here.”
