About the instructor

Michael Kistler ( is a Hong Kong artist specializing in fine art urban photography and photography education. Originally from Minneapolis, he lived in Tokyo for 10 years before moving to Hong Kong in 2014.

A signature element in his work is the often abstract human element and its connection to the city; the urban landscape and its structures provide permanence while people come and go, creating a dynamic environment of fleeting moments. He is constantly searching for and exploring unconventional perspectives and unique moments where people and the urban landscape collide, merge and co-exist.

In addition to having his work exhibited in Tokyo, NYC, Astoria, Minneapolis, London, Dublin, Porto and Hong Kong, Michael offers urban photography courses regularly in Hong Kong and is co­-founder of Finding Yourself in the Streets, a series of international street photography workshops. Michael has conducted workshops in Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Beijing, Dubai, Minneapolis and Yangon.
