“My introduction to Mike Shaw’s photography was in 2012 when I joined G+. I immediately became a fan of the B/Ws and the Portraits.When I discovered his Homeless Portraits, I couldn’t get enough.
A recent feed I participated in, brilliantly addressing the homeless issue, (https://osyth.org/2017/06/14/i-want-to-be-alone/) reminded me once again of Mike Shaw’s work. I would always try to visualize the life being lived in each photo.
Following will be an introduction to Mike F Shaw and two of his completed works, with two online addresses for you to continue viewing and reading if you wish.”

I Am The White Rabbit!
I am the white rabbit, I may not lead you to some place safe but I will lead you to some place new
I am a Cheshire UK based photographer, self taught and specialising in landscape and street portraits using the chiaroscuro style at times but I like to move about genres to test my abilities.
I have gone on to develop photographic techniques by crossing over editing software that has given me a style that is uniquely mine.
Looking to broaden my horizons and travel more around the globe to try and capture images of my own that reflect my outlook and to show the rest of the world what I see.
When you see your world through a viewfinder, as an image in your mind, the world is a different one to those others simply pass through, open your eyes
Piss Stained Step
Home is a piss stanied step
Booze to numb the smell
Booze to numb the day
Legs so thin
They could snap like straws
Welcome to the new age
