Michael Falco is a freelance photographer working for publications including the New York Times, British Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, National Geographic, and New York magazine.  He is working on a long-term project commemorating the sesquicentennial of the Civil War.  His pinhole photographs of the major battlefields, coupled with images of battle reenactments taking place around the country, have been selected for the permanent collection of the National Archive at the Library of Congress.  Falco’s first book collaboration, Along Martin Luther King: Travels on America’s Black Main Street, is a collection of his photographs taken of the many streets in this country named after Dr. King, and his photographic essay illustrates the Noble Maritime Collection’s book, Caddell Dry Dock: 100 Years Harborside. Where Marsh Meets the Sea, Falco’s 10’ x 28’ glass photographic mural, is a permanent installation at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal.  Falco traveled to Kilroot Mine in Carrickfergus, Ireland to produce photographs for the museum’s Salt Mountain exhibition.  Three years ago he took up pinhole photography “in a desire to slow down photographically,” he writes; “I liked the idea that I would have to make all the critical choices manually.”      www.falcophoto.com
