Mark Lipczynski

Mark Lipczynski My last name is pronounced, “Lip-chin-ski.”

 

 

Arizona-based photographer Mark Lipczynski makes delicious-looking food photographs, both in his personal work and for the magazine he co-created, Bite. Lipczynski draws inspiration from “the parallels of art and life,” and likes to look for the hidden details that can be found in ordinary scenes.

Lipczynski’s personal photographs and work for Bite reflect how food photography can do more than just showcase a delicious meal. Lipczynski’s background in photojournalism helped him learn how to tell stories with his pictures. One of his signature methods is to pair images. He tells PDN via email, “sometimes two pictures together tell a more complete story better than one stand-alone image.” His diptychs all share a common element, whether it’s a similar color palette, tonality, mood or style of food. Lipczynski works with a consultant, Peter Dennen of Pedro+Jackie Photo Consultants, to edit his work and pair the images.

The photography in Bite combines Lipczynski’s passion for food and storytelling. He and his partner, Michelle Jacoby, work together to educate readers on the emerging food scene in Arizona. Their food magazine is the first of its kind in Arizona and highlights many new and reinvented bars and restaurants.
