ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1959, Michael Wilson has lived there ever since. Over the years, he has developed a singular approach to portraiture with a distinctive group of subjects that includes such musicians as B.B. King, Randy Newman, Bill Frisell, Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, Phillip Glass, Emmy Lou Harris, Doc Watson, Richard Thompson, The Neville Brothers, Dawn Upshaw, Leo Kottke, Viktor Krauss, Loudon Wainwright III, Clarence "Gatemouth” Brown, Paolo Conte, Danny Elfman, Waylon Jennings, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Willie Green, Buddie Miller, Kelly Joe Phelps, Frederic Rzewski, David Sanborn and many others.

In 1985, Wilson published his first book of photographs and writing entitled, "Heads Bowed Eyes Closed, No One Looking Around".  In 1999, "First Kind Sight" was published.

In describing his artistic journey, Michael says, "A providential conspiracy seems to have been at work in the convergence of friends and events that led me to photography and to the college in Kentucky where I wound up studying photography. This is where I came to love pictures."
