artist biography Michael McCarthy
After having been raised in bucolic Ithaca, New York, I've had the great privillege of living in many different locations in the U.S. and Europe where I have been lucky enough to find university teaching positions with some regularity.

My first real experiences with art making took place in Paris nearly thirty years ago and ever since I've drawn great inspiration from my travels and periods of residence in different locations--including more than four years living in Italy (including in Rome, Palermo, Cortona and Florence). In France I've lived in the Paris region for more than ten years as well as in Cannes for one year. Two years spent living on the island of Paros in Greece also left an indelible mark on my art work.

I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of Vermont and then a Master of Fine Arts degree from Tyler School of Art in Photography where I also devoted considerable time to Printmaking (specializing in Etching and LIthography).

My photography work is represented in Paris by Galerie Duboys.

Take a look at some of my art and photo projects.

I offer private and small group photography classes and workshops in Paris through my Atelier Atlantis website.
