Murzin transitions comfortably between her personal and professional work, between black & white and colour images, between film and digital technologies. Drawn to the slow time and solitary space of her darkroom, Murzin sees making prints as a meditative practice that manifests in her final images. The textures and rhythms of old-school film development nurture Murzin’s creativity in an increasingly pixilated world.
No matter what the medium, Murzin’s images foreground transition: the time and space between states and subjects. Her photographic studies have included abandoned buildings, adolescents on the precipice of adulthood, and apartments in the time between tenants.
Lisa continues to experiment with alternative analogue processes, combing early studies in black and white processing with the future of digital negatives. Day-to-day, Lisa balances her personal photo projects with a commercial practice that includes event, portrait, and lifestyle photography.
