BIO: Michael Donnor’s career began with working with some of the most highly acclaimed professional photographers at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. He was selected as part of a team, to travel to Mexico assisting in producing and teaching workshops. His tenure at SFPW resulted in opportunities to work as a photo consultant with individual photographers across the country, guiding them in creating work and marketing it to relevant audiences.

STATEMENT: “There is a fascination I have when questioning our existence and relationship within the Universe. It is the pursuit of ultimate answers, as they relate to time, space, and transience that both science and art are in constant search of. My constructed images are fictions, but these fictions are based on truths. We are the way the Cosmos experiences itself, and with our imagination it may be understood.” –Michael Donnor
