About Mike

I am an artist-photographer interested in documenting landscape, history, place, and the narratives that humans create though experiencing and altering the world around them.

Inspired by the ‘New Topographics’ photographers, as well as Joel Sternfeld, Paul Graham, Taryn Simon, Chis Killip, Martin Parr and Simon Roberts, I use photographs to explore how landscape and history has been and continues to be altered.
