My Approach

How do you break the mold of the predictable and challenge that with the unexpected?

Hello, my name is Michael Chiu. I grew up locally, a latchkey kid, often left to my own devices. My home-life lacked a sense of joy, so I escaped to my imagination, constantly telling stories through ceramics and found materials.  I have always been a visual storyteller. Now with photography as my tool, I hope to tell stories that capture emotion and humor. Life is full of quirky circumstances and absurd reality and I love to explore that world through my unique visual lens.
