    Vic Nic says:

    "One thing stands out in Liber's work, passion. He has a way of seeing an image and nails it. His portrait work displays a skill that is not often seen despite the millions of photographers work out there on Flickr, his images display empathy and a degree of intimacy with the the person he is photographing, he displays depth and skill that not many can compare with.

    His advice and help, if at times may seem a bit critical, is all to serve a purpose, and that is to impart some of his knowledge and experience, and are meant to help you along the journey of learning.
    His "Pod casts" are a must !!

    His work has depth, scope, and very much "feeling"

    You will learn a so much from Liber and he will always offer help.

    fuck knows why he hates me ?

    "Liber's by far the nicest oligarch I know.
    From what I can tell though, he suffers from severe Oedipus complex since he has a manic interest in things that can be either shot or drilled; cameras, oil wells, booze and women (...). Open and shut case really.

    Anyway, he's a relentless and proper tosser, which is worth respect. Oh, and he takes excellent snap shots, check it!"

    "Liber has not only has not only delved deeply into the digital world but is equally adept when fondling film cameras. His travels enable all of us to see the real people and strange spots most of us will never get to see in person. His portrait, street, and work in general shows a talent that many wish they had and he didn't buy that. He was my first DMU contact because he has the eye and and the nuts to tell a person when there is really is something that could be improved and expound as to how to do so, and most of the time, be correct."

    "Liber has a big mouth, a lot of teeth, and looks mean.

    At least that's what I thought when I first 'met' him on flickr.

    Actually he has a big heart, a great sense of humour and can a wield a camera in a manner suggestive of actual talent.

    Being provocative as well as funny just goes with the territory, I wouldn't want him to be any other way."

    "Liber is a man of two faces, I think. One side takes hot schweet vibrant images of life. The other side takes hot schweet photos of barely dressed women. I actually like both sides. He is amazing, hard as that is for me to say......"

    "HELLO! I am DisGUSTING FOoL, and I wanted to says about MISTER LIBERT how much I am in love with his fotos. I LOVE THEM SOME MUCH, you stupids!

    rolandvarriale says:

    "Liber is a master of taking one picture and presenting it in three or four different ways. Through is careful use of cropping, lighting, and selective composition I have seen him Lightbox 1 photo 3 different ways at least twice.

    Not only does that show the breadth of his knowledge as a photographer, it shows us a little of how an artist actually thinks. The way he approaches his work is nothing less than admirable.

    He is a constant favorite of mine to see on my homepage when he uploads and he is always more than willing to go over photo technicals with you if you ask, and sometimes if you don't.

    His grasp of photographic concepts is astounding for an amateur and his camera collection costs more than all that I currently own"

    "If you take the time to look (and I mean really look) at Liber's photostream, you cannot come away without realizing what a talent he has for portraiture. He always seems to be able to perfectly capture his subjects' eyes. Those eyes speak volumes about past time, thoughts, hardships and hopes.

    He is absolutely fearless about who, what and when he shoots and I imagine that more than a few have resulted in threats of assault on him. Take some time and delve deep into his massive body of work. It will be time well spent."

    "Liber is incredibly generous in every way. He did something pretty amazing for me, without even really knowing me. Always ready to help with advice, constructive criticism. I have learnt a hell of a lot from him and his work in a short space of time.
    Oh, and did i mention he takes some pretty damn awesome photographs, a trip through his stream is definitely a worthwile experience. All round stand-up guy."

    "Liber is not just a brilliant photographer, he's also brilliant in spotting things worth photographing. Travelling more in a month than Tony Blair in a year, liber brings you an interesting slice of the world as he sees it with every upload. His talent for spotting subjects is amazing, only surpassed by his skill in converting the ordinary into something striking. Oh, and he knows more strip clubs in Europe than you do."

    "When beginning to photograph people on the street, there was only one source I considered consulting. Liber has taught me that you never photograph 'strangers' because you always get to know then 1st. He only shoots 'friends,' it's just that he has a myriad of friends around the world with ndew ones every day. That's a rare talent indeed."

    "Liber is singularly unique in both the range of his photographic subjects, the quality of the images he creates, and the pure lust for life that is evident in everything he does. If you need a good recommendation for a restaurant, a place to shoot, or a place for the best strippers, Liber seems to know where you should go."

    "Liber is an awesome photographer who shoots great portraits of beautiful women, old cranky guys, camels, donkeys and every other creature of the planet.

    He is the No 1 contributor to "The Lightbox" pool that only contains images that made it through the harshest DMU group on Flickr - > "DMU2"."

    "Liber is a talented photographer and a true friend. What I like the most about him is how he likes to share his overwhelming technical expertise with passion via his photostream and especially by his raw image Podcasts. This is a man that really adds something truly valuable and different to a photo community like Flickr. There are only a few of his likes among us!"

    Cosmos Traveler says:

    " I enjoy having one of Liber's photos show up on my screen. His subject matter ranges from landscapes, to the whimsical, to portraits. Having never been overly successful at portraits myself, I appreciate what he is able to achieve. He moves from a beautiful woman in the prime of her youth, to the work worn faces of the elderly. In each, he is able to capture the persona behind the face as well as the beauty and character of the face itself. You feel as if you are beginning to know this person through the photograph.
    His landscapes attain the ultimate. I'll look upon one of them and immediately want to leave what I am doing and be transported to the place where the photo was taken. It doesn't matter if it be a city, mountain, or seascape, I'll want to be there. What more could you ask of a photograph and its creator?
    Thanks for many beautiful shots, Liber. Keep on shooting."

    "Liber is a master portrait artist.

    His portraits are straightforward, and technically perfect.

    This straightforward approach reveals the person behind the photo -- his portraits are as honest and revealing as is possible. -- true beauty.

    His non-portraits are full of converging lines and striking perspectives. He has a clear eye that draws the viewer in and celebrates form.

    Enjoy this great photographer's work."

    early observation says:

    "Liber is the world's foremost photographer of pretty laydeez bosoms. One time he and I became drunk in Amsterdam and chased a group of Japanese tourists all the way to the Rembrandthuis, where we made them give us their underpants and then pushed them into a puddle. Then we walked arm in arm through the tulip gardens singing loudly songs from Walt Disney films."

    "I know liber for a long time and, at first, I was surprised he was into photography.

    Then I understood he takes it with the seriousness and passion he also devotes to the rest of his (many) works and (pre)occupations.

    And so, even if he just starting in the art, it is easy to see he may offer/is offering the world some nice shots.

    Thanks, man. ;)"
