ABOUT

Michael Varhol studied photography with Emmet Gowin at the Dayton Art Institute and was a photo officer at the US Army Photo Agency in the Pentagon. Based in Los Angeles, he is also a screenwriter with credits that include the cult classics “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” and “The Big Picture.” I mostly photograph the neighborhoods where I’ve lived and the streets where I drive. If I see something interesting, I shoot it.
