Michael Nozik has pursued his passion for making photographs in tandem with his career as an award-winning motion picture producer having won a British Academy Award for Best Film in a Foreign Language for his work producing The Motorcycle Diaries and received an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture for producing Quiz Show. Some of his other producing credits include Syriana, Salaam Bombay and The Next Three Days. His work as a producer has allowed him the privilege to travel throughout the world and he has used his camera as a kind of passport to explore the light, the people, the streets and cultures he visits, including throughout his home state of California. Nozik began making photographs as a teenager, shooting black and white film and developing and printing them in his home darkroom. He returned to a regular practice of making photographs six years ago, shooting both on film and in the digital format making color images in additional to continuing working in black and white. He prints all his own images using a Canon Pro-10 printer. He lives in Los Angeles, California with his wife Cherie.
