For the past two decades, Michael Randolph has been best known as a photojournalist and editorial photographer. Born in Northern Michigan in 1972, Michael gained an appreciation for small town life and the effects of humanity on the natural landscape. Working with 35mm, medium and large format films, his latest body of work has become a study on the evidence of human existence. 'Transient' explores man-altered landscapes in rural and suburban Michigan. The influence of the 'New Topographics' movement of the 1970's can be seen in his work. 'Epitaph' revisits what remains of his childhood home that had been occupied by 4 generations of his family. Michael currently resides in Midland, Michigan with his wife and daughter. For the past 6 years, he has been teaching photography at Delta College, and recently has been working as the University Photographer for Saginaw Valley State University.
