Michael Ivan is a photographer and filmmaker. He specializes in capturing images with a documentary style developed over 20 years running Loud Communications. It all started at age ten with capturing his mother’s expression as she entered their home for her surprise 50th birthday party (see photo below). His inquisitive approach leans into a passion for learning from others and seeing them in the places they thrive and feel at home.

His latest series Screen Time focuses a lens on people during the Covid-19 pandemic as they viewed their screens. Discovering what people watched and why while they relaxed in the comfortable spaces of their homes, Michael Ivan reveals their stories through their words and his images.
