has travelled the world in the last twenty-plus years, living and working in Italy for more than four years, Greece for two, and now France for seven years in addition to a number of years working and teaching in the U.S. This time spent living in and adapting to different cultures, different languages has left an indelible mark on Michael's work which spans a wide range of subjects and investigates innumerable aspects of photo history (from the oldest photo processes to the most recent digital innovations). While fascinated by various photographic and printmaking techniques, the goal has never been to simply master the techniques but rather to use them to make statements about the world we live in.
The Atelier Vagabond Photo Tours and Workshops site offers information about short term classes and workshops as well as photo guided tours in Paris and beyond to help beginning to advanced photographers see the hidden gems of Paris and develop their technical and aesthetic skills in photography.
Michael's photography work is represented in Paris by Galerie Duboys.
