My Bio One of Mike's primary intentions with this imagery is to capture sights typically considered banal or grotesque, and present them in a manner approaching a condition of beauty.

In addition to his personal work, Mike has produced images used in album art for such bands as Out To Lunch (New York), Herra Terra (Boston), Porcelain Dolls, and Ghost In The Machine (Colorado).

Notable exhibitions of his photos include participation in 2008's "Taste of Things" in Molfetta, Italy, as well as group shows at Compound Gallery in January of 2010 and Backspace in April of 2011, both located in Portland, Oregon. From September through October of 2011 his work is being featured in a one man show at the I Witness Gallery located in the NW Center for Photography (www.pnwcp.com).

All of the photographs presented in these books were subjected to digital enhancements involving adjustments to saturation levels and contrast .
