Michael McWeeney’s fascination with pictures started at the age of five when he began clipping and collecting photos that appealed to him from newspapers and magazines. Michael received his first camera at age eleven. Since then he has captured the moments that define who we are and the places that shape us. His photographs tell people’s stories, connecting us via the radius of visual communication.
Starting in 1990, Michael worked as a photojournalist in New York for 20 years before becoming a freelance photographer. He has received commissions from and exhibited work at the Alice Austen House Museum, The Architectural League of New York, the Noble Maritime Collection, The City of New York, and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Aside from working on his own projects, New York-based Michael now consults on book projects and teaching product workshops for the Leica Akademie.
