Background information and interests

Mike completed a BA Design/Photography at Curtin University in 2004, including a year exchange to Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. Whilst always having a passion for art, Mike only discovered photography during the latter half of his degree. Now his medium of choice, Mike’s fascinated by the concept of photography as a selective reality, and how individuals and society are portrayed through appropriation and manufactured meaning.

Mike likes to experiment with a range of photographic styles and genres to create his art, and is as much inspired by reportage as he is with portraiture. Although his work is often linked by the exploration of the familiarity, tradition and irony in everyday life, he aims at bringing an air of escapism and the visual unknown to his images.

Apart from Toronto, Mike’s also spent a year living in Europe, based in Berlin. This immersion and exploration of new cultures and societies creates a visual stimulation which also helps to refine his photographic skills. Although currently living in Perth, Mike hopes to soon undertake a Masters degree in Europe, where he would ultimately like to be based.
