Please join us for our next event at the Mining Institute when photographer Michael Grieve will be talking about his 2 new book projects to be published later this year.
Michael was born in Newcastle in 1966. After travelling the Middle East he moved to London to become a documentary photographer. In 1997 he graduated from the Photographic Studies MA at the University of Westminster and proceeded to work for magazines and organisations worldwide. His work has been published widely and he has undertaken commissions for magazines internationally such as the Sunday Times Magazine, Weekend Guardian Magazine, Liberation, and Le Monde. He has exhibited at galleries and festivals in the UK, France, Austria and most recently at the Recontres d’Arles International Photography Festival in France and the Noorderlicht International Photography Festival in the Netherlands. His first major book, No Love Lost, about dislocation and intimacy in sexual environments, is to be published in 2010 by Images En Manoeuvres Editions and he is currently working on a new book called Blue of Night.
