Marcia Michael

Born and raised in London, Marcia Michael began photographing at the age of eighteen. She studied photography at Derby University, moved on to Bournemouth Art College, and finally attended London College of Communication, where she completed her M.A. in photography with honors. While at Derby University, Michael began freelancing for many editorial magazines, such as Face, 20 Ans, Tank, 2nd Generation, and Trace, as well as several newspapers. She has produced work for London-based designers Bella Freud, Boudicca, Preen, and Louis de Gama. Her photography adheres to formal elements and is classical in nature and structure.  Her exploration of historical techniques has included the use of etchings, polymer photogravure, and screen-printing. She prints many of the images on her own handmade paper and does handmade books. Her Study of Kin project explores how classical photography represented black people in Britain.  Ms. Michael has also had her poetry published in the United Kingdom.
