Steve Gubin is a street and documentary photographer born in Chicago.

Although his photographs defy any easy categorization, a careful viewing often reveals a subtle sense of mystery and surrealism, odd frozen moments of uneasy ambiguity and whimsicality.

"I prefer to have an image whisper rather than shout.  If there is a consistent methodology to my work, it exists in an ongoing effort to show the transcendent and slightly surreal moments which occur in everyday life."

Steve's work has appeared in a number of print and online publications and has been exhibited at Bing Crosby Hall in San Diego, CA (2007, 2008), the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO (2009), and in Black & White Magazine (February 2014). Since 2010, he has photographed, filmed, and produced documentary videos for the Balkan Spring Festival held each year at the University of Chicago. His 2012 documentary was selected by the SALT Institute in Istanbul, Turkey for inclusion in their Balkan archives.

In 2014, his book "Chicagoland, Illusions of the Literal" was published by Cyanatic Images and is available for sale on Amazon.com.

He received a BA in Journalism from California State University, Northridge.
