Michael David Walrond

Born in Everett, Washington, Michael David Walrond (b. 1986) is a talented emerging fine art photographer based in San Diego. His career began at a creative agency, specializing in styling, set decorating and design. In 2017, the creative director, Christopher Alain Everett, encouraged him to pursue his own art and gave him a Leica Dlux. He discovered film photography the following year when a friend and fellow artist sold him a Canon AE-1. Entirely self-taught, he has since been showcased in solo exhibitions in San Diego and New York, and group shows across the United States and Europe. His work has been published in P Magazine, Osphilia, Others Magazine, Lomography, Artizians Magazine, and Supersonic Art. His latest monograph, "SHDWSOFDUST: A 7 Year Anthology of Analog Photography Work," debuted in October 2023 with Snap Collective.
This project delves into evolution, connection, and nature through double exposure portraits. I start by marking the first frame on the film with a permanent marker before capturing the initial image of a flower, butterfly, or abstracted object in direct sunlight. In the second or third exposure, I reload the film to the marked point and compose a portrait in subdued or low light, accentuating the subject with a color light of my choice. The result is a dreamlike fusion between the model and the initial object.
