Michael Tummings, born in London in 1966 as a child of Jamaican immigrants, sees himself as a citizen of the world. Confronted with topics such as origin, nations and social affiliation at an early stage, the camera became his instrument for overcoming cultural barriers. In addition to his commercial work for well-known international clients, Tummings has created a diverse range of artistic photography over the past 15 years. Since 2008 he has dedicated himself to hunting, the oldest form of human control over nature. Michael Tummings was invited to an artist-in-residence programme in 2011 by the Lightwork organisation in Syracuse. In 2014, Tummings realised his first figurative work with the sculpture “Huntsman I”. The artist lives and works in Munich.
