Michael Donovan Photography
New York-based fashion photographer Michael Donovan is a master at making his models relaxed and at ease, his shots capture stolen moments beautifully. His work sees models in differing states of self-expression; from laughing out loud to being in fits of tears. Yet, all the emotions appear completely authentic, leaving you wandering what was said or done to make the model react in such a way… it was obviously not just “say cheese”.
While Donovan’s usually grainy and black and white appearance of his work and collages harks back to the glory days of 60s and 70s cinema, he skillfully manages to combine just the right amount of grit in his images, to create interest in them, without overpowering their beauty.
