Born in Munich, Michael Harker studied Economics in Vienna followed by a professional career of more than 25 years in the industry and as a consultant. From 2007, Michael has been refocusing on photography. Ever since, various projects have taken him all over the world. He focuses on the photography of cities, people and landscapes. As a street photographer, Michael Harker strives to pull attention to the lesser-known neighbourhoods of famous big cities – e.g. New York. By experimenting with perspective, he shows the morbid beauty of megacities and tells about urban diversity and inconsistency. In the area of people photography Michael Harker has always been fascinated by mature restraint and dignity as well as the child's ingenuousness, which he seeks to preserve in his pictures.
