"Your apparent youth belies your worldly knowledge."

Artist Statement

I am a fine art film photographer living in the Midwest. The analog process excites me. I love opening the development tank and seeing solid negatives. Having my hands in a tray of chemicals, under the red light, watching an image slowly appear from nothing, is my panacea. I explore texture through grain, light and shadow. Imperfection is part of the process, and I embrace that in my work – whether it is from a worn out old camera, or a fault in a process. I am analog, from snapping the shutter, to creating the print. If you have any questions or comments, you may contact me at mike@justmike.us.
