Michael Lagerman was born in Green Bay, WI and raised on the shores of Lake Huron where he spent his summers. He started making photographs and installations while studying philosophy at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI. Michael is now a MFA candidate in the Photography and Imaging department at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. His work begins with the photograph and expresses the medium’s plasticity as a means to explore material expectations in relation to social, environmental, and psychic realms. With his work he demonstrates the productive space found in the margins between these various ecologies. Outside of his studio and research, Michael is an educator, curator and community organizer focused on the intersection of queerness, public and private spaces, and fostering momentum for direct action.
