About Michael E Northrup
Michael has decades of professional experience under his belt; he is an accomplished photographer, a practiced university lecturer and an established commercial artist. “I think photography discovered me more than I discovered it. I was in my third year of college and about to drop out after trying everything from theatre to aeronautics. Nothing excited me. The Vietnam War was raging. So I did something I had never attempted before — I tried fine art. I took a photography course and by the end of the year I was hooked,” Michael tells It’s Nice That.
Michael is particularly inspired by snapshot aesthetics, a term coined in the 1960s to describe a genre of art photography that focuses on everyday subject matters and off-centred framing.
