Artist Statement

Michael McGraw
Artist Statement
My main goal when taking a photograph is to either
create composition out of chaos or interest out of emptiness.

I like to be alone for an hour or so looking around to see if any scrubby nature-y bits can be photographed in a pleasing way. I like that my breathing and heart rate slow when I am looking through the viewfinder adjusting the focus in and out.

Scrubby bits of nature

About Me

My photo
Minneapolis, MN, United States
Photographer/Artist based in Mpls, MN. I have a studio in the NE Arts District--Studio #274 at the Northrup King Bldg, 1500 Jackson St NE. I photograph elements of nature to explore color, shape, and composition. My goal is to capture images of the nature around me in a way that explodes (or seaps) with beauty. If that nature is in a vacant city lot, all the better. (All images Copyrighted. Use permitted with permission).
