“I grew up in NYC and began making photographs and painting at age 12. I worked my way through college and grad school
photographing rock and jazz music personalities and groups. I did album covers, ads, publicity, covered parties and recording sessions and made one of the first music videos in 1967.
I lived in the Virgin Is., Rome and New Mexico, making photographs, paintings and prints. From 1972 to 1985 I concentrated on painting and printmaking.
I had fifteen exhibitions in NYC, Dallas, Santa Fe and LA during that period. By 1990 I had gone over to photography full time,
mostly working on the large format Mythology project.
Some of those images were shown at the Kitchen in NYC in 1994 and at the Reina Sofia National Museum and Art Center, Madrid, Spain. For the last 16 years I’ve been making images dealing with rural life, homelessness and other related subjects.” – Stephen Lorber
