Michael Shaw has written several photo-essay books, one winning an award for inspirational poetry.
His degree in Fine Art from The New York Institute of Technology inspired him to combine art with science in a series of books for teachers and their young scientists to help prepare winning science fair projects.
Mr. Shaw’s reproductions of ancient Egyptian Art have been sold at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and at The Field Museum in Chicago. His life-size reproduction of the north wall of King Tutankhamen’s tomb was purchased by the Museum at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia for permanent display. His commercial art has sold in department stores nationwide, and his art and photography have been featured in books, magazines, and on television.
