Jake Michaels’s work is always in flux. On some days it’s an exploration of aesthetics, hard lines and California color. On others it’s an investigative journey though different subcultures around the world. Lately its been a blend of the two ideas. 

The LA-based Art Center graduate currently divides time between commercial and personal photography, and he’s busy compiling a street book and directing documentary shorts. His clients include The New York Times, HP, UBER and Monocle.
