Self-portrait at 36, 2015. Photo by Michael Clinard.

The son of an Ecuadorian mother and her Tennessee stud, Michael Clinard is a conceptual photographer from the era of 8-bit Nintendo and unsupervised bottle rocket wars. 

Clinard's offbeat and whimsically-infused photographic style is informed by degrees in art and art history and an interest in science, philosophy and theory. 

Michael tinkers and keeps sketchbooks in a home outside Seattle that he shares with his wife and their three children.

He is represented by Michelle Bablitz of Saint Lucy Represents.
