Surfaces and Strategies Student Introduction
Hello, I’m Michael Turner, a student of the Falmouth Flexible MA Photography course. I’m moving into my second year having started in the May 2018 intake. Within the industry, I’m Studio Manager at Trade Secrets Live.
I’ve been published in a London Group photobook comprising 19 images and the quote. I group exhibited twice in London during 2018.
My portfolio is in the abstract. I re-present minor bodily injury, normally ignored, in order to identify with the discovery of lost ancestors who continued fighting in the Great War despite injury and wounding. I trace shared mitochondrial DNA connections as this is what converts nutrients to our bodily energy and I use this to express a connection through the glow that our bodies emanate. In some relations the exact same mitochondria that powers us both now and then.
