Biography

Michael Waller-Bridge's curiosity within the visual arts was sparked by works in New York's Museum of Holography and he began his work in this medium by studying at the New York School of Holography after which he set up his own Studio in London in the 1980s.

Work by Michael is held in various collections, including the UK Parliamentary Art Collection and holograms by him have been acquired by the Jonathan Ross Hologram Collection among others. He was commissioned to make unique pieces by, among other organisations, Molinare (TV and Film), Amerada Hess (Oil and Gas) and the London Stock Exchange.

His explorations in the visual arts led him ultimately to photography and a particular interest in Abstracts, Portraiture and most recently a new project underway in Still Life photography.

Michael gained a BSc Honours degree in Theoretical Physics from Kent University, followed by a Masters in History of Science at Imperial College London and postgraduate experience at CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Reasearch.

His works in Holography and Photography have been exhibited in Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Spain, UK and the USA.

Michael Waller-Bridge lives in Norfolk, England with his wife, Artist, Designer and Writer Rosemary Goodenough.
