Ian Lobb Photographer 1948 – 2023
It’s with great sadness we announce the sudden death of photographer Ian Lobb.
Ian’s contribution to the photographic world is huge. He received an Australia Council Grant in the 1970’s to study photography with Ansel Adams and Paul Caponigro. While in the USA he also met Eliot Porter, Brett West, Barbara Bullock, Harry Callaghan, Emmett Gowin and Ralph Gibson.
He taught photography at Phillip Institute and RMIT University and also conducted workshops in fine art photography. Ian was a master print maker and his work has been collected by the National Gallery of Australia and the National Gallery of Victoria.
His most recent work is of a Eucalypt in Fairfield.
Ian Lobb will be greatly missed.
