BIO

Michael Donovan is a photographer/artist born in Spokane, Washington.

Before photography MD worked as an Operations Manager, sold a lot of things (cars, mens suits, long distance, and whatever else he was curious about) and did standup comedy for a short period.

Donovan moved to NYC in 2008 to work on his photography and art career. He loved it all. Until he no longer loved the city’s harsh vibes and the long winters.

Eventually MD transitioned to LA in 2018 - the sunsets, weather, and vibes were more his style.

His photography is a mashup of sex, death, coming of age stories, pop culture, commercialism, counter culture, psychedelia, celebrations of life, emotion, and so much more.

He also runs a podcast called “Walking Home” which explores our weird lives in this beautiful world.
