Mr.Mitch is also known as Mr. Mircea, a jerk, sweet, cocky or all around very nice guy, depending on who you ask.

 

No relation to either Dracula or Vlad the Impaler, Mitch

originally hails from the Transylvania region of Romania. Oddly enough, he lives within walking distance of Rosehill Cemetery on Chicago's Northwest Side.

 

An insane film buff and a doctor and teacher in the making, Mitch seriously took up photography many years ago. He now shoots

in a wide variety of formats, ranging from digital point-and-shoots and

35mm SLRs to his favorite USSR-made, commie medium format camera. While he sometimes can be seen lusting over the latest digital SLR (and more :-), he almost always finds himself going back to his first love: film.

 

He normally doesn't like to talk about himself in the third person, but there's a first time for everything.

 

And as of recently, Mitch is the official Focus contributor for the Chicagoist (www.chicagoist.com). Check out his new exclusive Chicago pics every Thursday.

As Mitch says in his profile, everyone would describe him differently depending upon their relationship and experience with him. I haven't seen some of the adjectives he's listed, and perhaps would characterize them differently. So, for what it's worth, from my viewpoint, Mitch is intelligent and street smart and he's charming. The charming part can be a tool to survive and thrive in many situations...and it is a talent. He attracts people into his realm of influence using his charm and then keeps them by following up with very interesting conversation. I would hazard a guess that he's a accomplished flirt. Basically, he's a very smart and interesting guy and you'll never, ever be bored in his presence!

Mircea Is among one of the few people I have meet in this short life who knows what hook worm is. On a serious Note he keeps getting better and better And makes me miss home everytime I go onto his page. Serious Photography from a man who laughs so hard he spits out whatever he's drinking often. I agree with the others who have spoken of him, his photography is honest and provoking. P.S Do you ever wish you could breathe underwater?

Mitch brings a whole new meaning to photography, with his remarkable capacity to create images that are at once comfortably familiar and startlingly unique. It's his eye, and his talent for burning visually powerful images on film, that impresses.
