From delivering DIY zines in pizza boxes to taking the portraits of some of the world’s most mysterious luminaries, Michael Danischewski’s work spans across all media. Be it digital, video, print magazine and film, few photographers capture the spirit of a subterranean moment quite as well as the Melbourne based artist, who began shooting at punk gigs. Now working with clients as diverse as Lee Jeans and The Operatives, graffiti artists and musicians and collaborating with multidisciplinary crew Studio615, Michael’s underground aesthetic, curious eye and dexterous expertise has lead him to become one of Australia’s most coveted photographers.
Regularly armed with a Contax T3, a free spirit and a pocket full of film, Danischewski explores the underbelly of the cities he visits, capturing not only their subcultural movements, but also those individuals who are breaking new ground.
