About Mike Born

[ pods corner ]

A camera does not capture reality. It creates one.


Mike Born is a photographer and visual artist. He has worked in the media industry in various countries for more than 30 years, doing art production, then art direction, later media consulting. Now in his fifties and semi-retired, he is finally able to focus on documentary and fine art photography rather than production. Mike is exclusively working on own projects or some special ones done with "old friends" in the media.

Mike is currently shooting with this gear:
Camera: Sony Alpha 7R III
