"Michael's victim is our planet as we know it now … and he gives it a voice. His pictures speak to me and reveal not only our greed, carelessness, and wastefulness, but also our hopefulness in an ability to perhaps see that things vulnerable are the most fragile and treasured things to behold. In a way, it's a shame that his eye is so developed and his talent is such that everything he captures comes out in an evocative and hauntingly beautiful way. But that's the paradoxical nature of his art … that he loves the world so much and cares so much for its future, that he can't help but capture its beauty and majesty in a way that doesn't show how degraded we have become as shamelessly wasteful people."
