Michael Harvey Black and motion



Michael Harvey was born in Brazil and lived in Rio de Janeiro until the age of 7, when he was sent to school in the U.K. He studied Physics and Astronomy at University, and this scientific background is visible in his work- the fascination with collections, the clinical lighting that gives all of his work an immediately recognisable sleekness and graphic quality.
Michael knew straight out of University that his ambitions lay in photography and he started out working as an assistant in a studio that specialised in car photography.
Michael is like a one-man United Nations- he speaks 5 languages- having lived in Brazil, Italy, Amsterdam, London- and has travelled all around the world for work and pleasure. One of his most prestigious and memorable commissions was an extended stay in Saudi Arabia photographing Pre-Islamic art at the National Museum in Riyadh for an exhibit at the Louvre in Paris.

Michael uses the Hasselblad system for his studio work- arguably one of the best photographic systems available. The Hasselblad 50 megapixel multishot allows him incredible sharpness, clarity and the ability to produce images to cover billboards and buildings. It was this cutting-edge top of the range system with its unsurpassed sharpness that encouraged Michael to be an early adopter of digital photography and has established him at the forefront of digital development. When shooting with film, his Linhof 54 Master Technika camera still has a firm place in his heart.
