After many years of working in small and medium format color photography, Michael has been working in large format (4x5) since 1990. Using a Linhof Master Teknika field view camera, he travels widely in search of unusual designs of earth and man. Studies of the historical and cultural aspects of the areas and subjects Michael photographs further his understanding of the elements and forces of design. His goal is to communicate the mystery and majesty of these many designs and forms through his traditional and handcrafted platinum/palladium prints.
Michael has exhibited his work of the Cathedrals and Abbeys of England in a one man show entitled "Pillars of England"at the National Cathedral gallery in Washington, DC,and taught photographic workshops in conjunction with the exhibits. He was invited and participated in a group show entitled America the Beautiful, an exhibit at Schomburg Gallery, Bergamot Station, Santa Monica, CA, in honor of the victims and survivors of 9-11. His award winning landscape work has been included in a variety of other exhibits, juried shows and galleries, and is held in numerous private and corporate collections.
