Although he’s been doing photography for quite some time now, it would be wrong to describe the work of Michael Torosian as pure photography. The reason for that is his work in printing which he’s been doing almost as long as photography. To combine his two kinds of work or passions in one, he decided to open Lumiere Press, a publishing agency for limited edition books specialized in photography. Since 1986, when Lumiere Press was open, Torosian has published around 18 handmade books, all on the subject of photography and famous photographers. When it comes to the pure photography part, Michael’s work focuses on still and simple takes of people. Photographs are either portraits or are connected by a similar subject, such as Anatomy where he took a number of photographs on the topic of female’s body.
