Kai Michael is a fine art photographer based in Bellingham, WA. His images, although highly altered in digital postproduction, begin as either medium or large format film negatives.
Much of his influence is drawn, conceptually, from a fascination with the reconstructive nature of memory, and formally, from the Color Field and Lyrical Abstraction movements
I leave you to enjoy 10 of his selected pictures that can be grouped into 3 main series:
- Constructed Horizons series: Â These are constructed landscapes. Everything located above the horizon is not native to the original image, consisting of either walls or surfaces. By substituting the skyline with a finite surface, the image fluctuates between the physical and the infinite
- Homes series: A study in the absurd, all of the windows have been removed.
- Untitled – ultrachrome from film
