My name is Michael Monaco I have always been interested in the arts my whole life; being surrounded by creatives in my family I was naturally drawn to the arts to release all of my creative energy. The medium that drew my largest interest was photography after enrolling in a black and white photography class sophomore year of high school. Never had I been exposed to such a magical medium; having the ability to make endless sketches of the real world instantly. I mainly focus on working on long term projects now such as; Industrial Landscapes and documenting the every day on the street. My strongest fascination with photography is that it is constantly fueling my curiosity with the natural world.
