Greg Seman, Shine On: Photographs of the Northwestern Michigan Region, signs his book at Traverse City’s Horizon Books.
Born and raised in Flint, MI in 1959, Traverse City became Greg Seman’s adopted hometown in 1990.
Greg’s lifelong fascination of black and white photography began at age twelve, when he taught himself to develop film and contact print; a passion that has continued to this day. He now photographs with 4×5 and 8×10 inch film cameras, exposing and developing each sheet of film individually, and printing the black and white negative himself on silver gelatin paper in the darkroom. The effort applied to each negative and print reflects Greg’s respect and passion for Michigan and his intention to portrait its uniqueness.
Living in the Northern Michigan region has been essential to his body of work; observing the shoreline transition from season to season and photographing on his daily commute or lunch hour, witnessing moments of dramatic change. Evenings allow for a time of exploration and becoming intimate with areas on the coast of Lake Michigan.
