Probably more attentive to discarded items and piles of filth on the footpath than he should be, Micah has always found something calming in documenting what he sees and how he sees it. He’ll spare us the sob story, so to speak, but when his mind wanders, instead of using a crutch, photograph’s a way of grounding himself by only focusing on where he’s pointing and shooting his weapon of choice (camera, we’re talking about a camera). Growing up in Dandenong, Micah was always intrigued by his surroundings (kind of had to be aware as it is Dandenong (it wasn’t that bad but it’s definitely not Toorak)) and just felt like taking photos of what he observed on a day to day basis. A lot of places and faces he’s photographed are no longer around, however you interpret that; the world is an ever changing place and he finds as times change along with people and our environments, the more he’d like to remember it. Melbourne is a busy city in which we are sometimes moving too fast to appreciate the present time, we blink and it’s gone. The work Micah presents is his way of appreciating where he is, in this moment where he should be.
