Clinton Lubbe Artist Bio:
Born and raised in South Africa during the apartheid era in the 70's, private education meant that I was able to attended one of the few mixed race schools in the country. Growing up with, at that time, a broader perspective and a natural inclination towards challenging the status quo rewarded me with a great deal of frustration within an ever evolving social washing machine and a somewhat stagnant and Calvinistic market place. Having grown up around photography I never considered a formal education in the field. Working in a commercial photographic career that has spanned 20 years I have won photographer of the year from the biggest media group in the country, am a Canon brand ambassador, was editor of the country's biggest photographic publication and have produced hundreds of covers and editorials. During a period of two years when I focused on film I took this opportunity to pause and begin curating my photographic work. Although I still produce some commercial work, taking a step back I am now enjoying the balance and time afforded by channeling my energy into producing more work for myself. I am a portraitist at heart but have a great love for photography with it's many genres and simply appreciate and marvel at the ability that light and time have to reflect a moment.
