Michael Duva lives and works in New York City. He attended Rutgers University and the School of Visual Arts, studying engineering/film and photography respectively
Duva’s celebrated portraits of wild and domesticated animals—which he photographs on location—allow the viewer into a contemplation that is both reverent and intimate. Duva prides himself in not disturbing the animals in their environment to achieve his photographs. Whether in an aviary, a wildlife sanctuary, a farm, a zoo, or out in the wild, he waits for the perfect moment. This patience, in conjunction with a masterful technique, results in captivating portraits. The hyperrealism of details like whiskers, feathers, and fur juxtaposed against a deep black background, celebrate the intrinsic power and beauty of nature. Through his lens, Duva compels the viewer to see his subjects not only as aesthetic objects but as equals.
Duva has been included in numerous photo annual awards and published worldwide in the book covers of authors such as Irvine Welsch, Mary Higgins Clark, Joseph O’Neil, and a multiplatinum album cover by Kings of Leon. He is the recipient of an AOL grant—with a committee featuring Whitney Director Adam Weinberg and Chuck Close.
