“Shadows define the Light.”
Michael’s first camera, at age 9, was a Kodak Brownie. He learned to shoot, process and contact print 4×5 B&W pictures using his grandfather’s Speed Graphic at age 11. More cameras and formats have crossed his path since.
Working with aerial photographs in the Army and commercial work in NYC and NJ, Michael longed for the personal satisfaction of playing with the “Quality of Light”, it’s many tones, especially as expressed in B&W. His early work is defined by the beauty of light, and now settled in Eugene, Michael seeks to recapture the “Glory of Seeing the Light”.
