Michael is a New York based documentary and portrait photographer. His visual story-telling approach is based on creatively adapting to the multi-faceted global work cultures of 21st century industries and corporations. In addition to more than a decade photographing behind the scenes of NASA and its aerospace contractors like Lockheed, Boeing and Orbital ATK, Michael’s experience brings not only trust, but measurable skill in knowing how to photograph in secure, limited access work environments that result in both a visual sense of craft and unscripted humanity.
His work has been published in media like Wired, Smithsonian Magazine, New Scientist, New York Times, Washington Post, NPR and Time. Simon & Schuster recently published "Infinite Worlds", a coffee table book of Michael’s photographs on the labor and tools that saved the Hubble Space Telescope. Eight mural size images from his series on fabricated astronaut space tools as minimalist sculpture are in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian’s National Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC.
