Michael James Slattery

San Diego, CA, USA

Michael James Slattery is a Del Mar, CA native with a unique luminescent style that has been refined through countless hours in darkrooms and decades of experience with photography. As famous painters and photographers have captured the beauty of dusk and dawn forever, his work is a combination of many techniques that captivate the dynamic range of the mind’s eye and celebrate light.

Slattery’s work centers around traditional camera capturing techniques, traditional darkroom manipulation, a painters blend of a small palette of colors to create many colors, remarkable light-capturing technology, and archival printing methods. The ultimate goal of his work is to show how the concrete, asphalt, wood, paint, plastic, and glass we use to create our societies are just as important as the trees, mountains, soil, and seascapes that we place them among.

As an artist, he is unique in that he controls the entire process from capturing the images, blending them to create one luminous image, printing and framing.

“Michael James Slattery makes magic out of the ordinary. He does that by seeing the world in a different light — one that eludes most of us. In his mind’s eye, he sees a scene though a span of hours, into the future under changing light. Slattery lets his camera capture that series of images then uses his remarkable digital skills to create vibrant works of art.” – Ron James, San Diego Uptown News
