Michael McConnell (American, born 1971) Michael’s work features recent form, figure and fashion images, striking in composition and the starkness of high-contrast black and white. “I want my black and white imagery to convey a sense of mystery and emotion that, for me at least, is missing in much of my early work,” Michael says. “Consider that a photographer might end his career with just 200 images capsulizing his life’s work. At 1/100 of a second, that’s just two-seconds of his life. I want those two seconds to be the best two seconds of my life.” Michael has exhibited his work at the prestigious Camera Obscura and other Denver galleries. His work also hangs in private collections worldwide. A native of Colorado, Michael has spent his entire career within the print and photography industries. He considers his most important evolution as a photographer to be the experience he gained living in the Netherlands and working for a manufacture of graphic arts equipment. Featured in this exhibition are several very impressive large-scale prints, one at least 8-feet tall. Adding to the allure of his presentation are exquisite handmade curved frames, which he creates himself, a process that takes more than 120 hours per frame. “The frames take a lot of effort to get perfect, but it’s time well spent,” Michael says, because they make his photos almost sculptural. For Media Release Michael McConnell’s photographs are the culmination of his progression from a “pretty landscape” photographer to a maker of images with soul. Michael’s work features recent form, figure and fashion images striking in composition and the starkness of high-contrast black and white. “I want my black and white imagery to convey a sense of mystery and emotion that, for me at least, is missing in much of my early work,” Michael says.

"Land Rover, revolutionizing the way luxury and adventure meet."

I chose the above tag line for the Land Rover Story Challenge because that's why I own a Landy. Pretty simple.

Working for free.

Published November 29th, 2010

Dear friends, artist and photographers lets not work for free. It seems like everyday somebody ask me to shoot something at no charge or that I lose a job to a photographer that shoots the job for almost nothing. We are highly skilled and deserve to get paid. We must start to work together so that we are not exploited. Thanks, Michael
