If he chose to display all his awards in one place, photographer Michael Barton would need just about all the wall space of his showroom at Indigo Photographic. As it is, Michael opts to let his work do the talking and rest silently on the laurels of several Kodak Gallery and Fujifilm Masterpiece awards. Armed with master's degrees in photography and electronic imaging, Michael brings his keen eye and extensive training to bear on stirring solo portraits of children and adults as well as tasteful and edgy boudoir images. He also transmutes images of flowers and landscapes into dreamy, color-soaked compositions. Michael’s camera and imagination also have captured the lithe, balletic movements of a wild garlic plant, sans its traditional tutu made of Miracle-Gro wrappers.
