For a four-month period during 2012, as a Photographer in Residence with the Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (BSMHFT), Michael completed and published his first major photo-project, entitled ‘Monday Comes Very Quickly – photographing the un-seeable’.
“ Michael’s Photo project has done much to further reduce the stigma and prejudices people in mental health sometimes face, the project was ground-breaking in the way it showed mental health in a way rarely seen by the wider world.”
Sue Turner, Chief Executive, BSMHFT, September 2012.
” The very fact that Michael has pulled a piece of work together on this scale is to be applauded. It is a massive undertaking and one that Michael threw himself into with a passion, spending many weeks working with the Trust.”
