My name is Mike McIlvaney
My photography is an expression of my curiosity for people and the places they inhabit. I am particularly drawn by interactions between people and with the structures that surround them in the urban landscape.
When not working to a project my photography is generally unplanned, always candid and in public. All images derive from single shots. I delight in capturing the spontaneous events and occurrences that unfold before the camera’s lens transforming otherwise mundane scenes into moments of theatre
I work in both digital and analogue formats; processing my work in Lightroom and the darkroom.
Only recently have I opened up my street work to public view.
I hope you enjoy some of the images you find here.
