Michael Philip Manheim
When I was a teen, my family moved into a house with this long, long driveway. By this time I always had a camera at the ready, and was intrigued with the footsteps that the paperboy left. He did keep the newspaper dry, by tossing it onto the porch where I was now standing. The composition, I realized, needed a focus. So I folded up another newspaper and completed the scene. This was in the 1950s and is included in my nostalgia project called How Once We Were.
Biography: Michael Philip Manheim became a professional photographer in 1969. He began his career as a photojournalist and took him years of experimentation to come up with a personal vision. Michael went through many phases, transitioning much later into a focus on themes of change and transformation. Over the last score of years he developed a signature style of layering multiple exposures of authentic movement onto a single photographic frame. He created an impressionistic approach that transcends the literal. Michael's photography has been exhibited throughout the USA, in Germany, Greece & Italy.
