CV

After working as a photojournalist for two decades, Michael turned to fine art photography in the 1990s. It resulted in LA96 - a series of photographs showing Los Angeles from inside a car. In the late 2000s Michaels focus shifted solely to extended landscape projects, assignments came to a halt. WALD, a series about the German forest with major shows in Germany and abroad was followed in 2105 by FLUSS (depicting the largest European river Rhine). The current series BERG (the Alps), photographed since 2013, will be released at the end of 2018.
