Michael Donovan’s images navigate an exploration into consumer culture, advertising and the emotions separating art and fashion photography... Donovan’s work speaks to the current wave of lo-fi spontaneous camerawork but also makes room for the kind of off-kilter glamour... Donovan plants that aesthetic firmly in the 21st century though with challenging compositions that explore power, sexuality and imperfection.

Combining the beautiful with the bizarre, the controlled with the chaotic, Donovan´s photography destabilizes the highly polished images expected of today’s consumer culture through the use of the psychedelic, androgyny, comedy, eroticism, surrealism, fantasy, Pop Art, cinema, fetishism and historical nuance.
