Michael A Shapiro was born in 1954 and began photographing in 1962. He trained with his father and from 1966-1968, with artist, David West, at the Sioux City Art Center. Working in black and white with small format cameras, Shapiro began capturing images of what he called the “human landscape,” with many of the photographs including people in daily life and in fringe cultures such as Lakota Sioux, Inuit, and rodeo cowboys.
Between 1972 and 1986, Michael also studied music and writing and taught at the university level until 1999. Since 2000, he spends all his time photographing.
