When asked about his work Labovitz states. “What attracts me to the scenes I photograph is a sense of place, peace, timelessness, and mystery. This can manifest itself in many ways: the sensuality of architecture; the layers of history visible in a very old place; a meadow anchored by a cloudy sky; a half-wild community garden; the spaces that join human and natural environments.” Labovitz photographs with a variety of older and vintage cameras. The medium-format film (primarily monochrome) is digitally scanned and toned, but content is not manipulated. Prints are produced using a “quadtone” inkjet process with true black-and-white, long-lasting carbon-pigment inks on archival paper.
