“We met in 1976, got married in 1978 and divorced in 1988. She was both wife and muse. For me, creating images is all about my daily life, those meaningful pictures I’m able to extract from it, and the personal vision I bring to those visual narratives.” – These, the words of Michael E. Northrup when talking about his series, Dream Away.
The images tell a love story about life and love itself. They develop a portrait of both the artist and his subject. It’s about Northrup’s obsession with “the photograph”, his vision, and the significant, funny, and unique pictures he’s able to make from life itself.
