Eduardo D. Rubin
nspired by revealing people, places and objects in their
most candid moments, Argentinean-American photo-
Eduardo D. Rubin
interprets reality with a profound
humanistic lens. His creative vision captures subjects in their
most visually appealing state, suggesting a truth that lies
beyond the naked eye. Each subject, whether inanimate
or alive, conveys an emotional poignancy that inescapably
reveals the subtext of the image. Through composition and
choice, Rubin’s work is passionate and informative, drawing
the viewer in with an insight that is deeply personal. Many
of his works are serendipitous and unexpected, when light
and shadow, time and place create the perfect setting for
discovering images that are both revealing and existential.
Through patience, creative talent and persistence, Rubin
succeeds in capturing “the moment,” dutifully reflected in
imagery that seems voyeuristic. “If you are in the shadows
and they are in light, you are invisible,” says Rubin. The artist
approaches photography as the art of taking a piece of reality
and showing it as the whole. He is an “auteur” of space and
light, capturing subjects in their naked essence, revealing
their soul in a way that invites contemplation. Drawing
on his training as a social psychologist, each photograph
is a testimonial to what his camera sees and what the
mind interprets, a timeless reminder of the character in
each subject. Each print exemplifies a mood or emotion, a
moment of solace or sorrow that touches the viewer in a
very personal way. Other works are light, articulating the
subtleties of nature and man’s inescapable need to connect
and feel free. Rubin is currently working on a project called The City Voyeur, which aims to capture the essence of cities
through photographic moments.
