About My Work:

Inspiration for Michael’s photographs comes from his urban up-bringing in Chicago. Growing up in the shadow of the industrial neighborhoods surrounding the steel mills, Michael became comfortable with the most often gritty and unkempt houses and buildings of his South Side neighborhood. Preserving these structures that feel comfortable in themselves as they stand today, Michael looks for these building in the small towns and cities of the Midwest, and keeps them preserved in his imagery. Often fitting portraits of who/what they were and have become. His imagery is often straight forward and simple with an eye on the architectures shapes, texture and colors.
