“Michael Donovan’s images navigate an exploration into consumer culture, advertising and the emotions separating art and fashion photography. What do we expect of these mediums and how do we expect them to make us feel? The glossy texture presupposes a level of glamour which is intentionally omitted, replaced with a dreamlike numbness, or vacant sexuality creating a space for us to question what defines art and fashion photography in contemporary culture.”

Straddling the line between fantasy and reality, between sweet dream and surreal nightmare, he brings out an unharnessed and highly erotic energy in the women he photographs that is thrilling to witness. They exude a much-appreciated confidence and an electric sexuality – raw and uncensored and utterly captivating, whether they are staring down the camera or shrouded in shadows. There is also a winking mischievousness to these shots, a carefree playfulness about sex and nudity that we are all craving a little more of these days.
The images he produces as a photographer are rough around the edges and brazenly bizarre, like a strange and sexy fun house mirror held up to what we’ve come to expect from fashion photography. These dreamlike, colorful photos challenge you to think as much as they turn you on, and nothing is sexier than that.

The enlightenment community often shows us that rainbows and unicorns may exist. But [Michael Donovan’s] podcast is like finding the “pot of gold” at the end. It’s for the seekers who have the courage to ride their unicorns off into the mysterious world of Truth and higher consciousness.

If humanity exists in shades of gray, then Michael Donovan exists in shades of rainbow. Calling him colorful is an adorable understatement.
