Michael Tummings, born in London in 1966 as the child of Jamaican immigrants, sees himself as a citizen of the world. Confronted at an early age with concepts such as origin, nation and social affiliation, the camera became his instrument for breaking down cultural barriers. In addition to his commercial work for well-known international clients, Tummings has created a diverse body of artistic photography over the past 15 years. Since 2008, he has devoted himself to the subject of hunting, the oldest form of man's subjugation of nature. In 2011, Michael Tummings was invited by the Lightwork Photo Institute in Syracuse to participate in an artist-in-residence program. With the sculpture "Huntsman I" Tummings realized his figurative debut work in 2014. The artist lives and works in Munich.
