Mike Spears was born in the lovely state of Indiana and later grew up in Puerto Rico. He went to film school at Boston University, where his passion for the provocative developed. Brooklyn has been his home since 1999 and is the base for most of his erotic photography work.

Mike Spears' photos combine the erotic body with the urban landscape in a way we've never seen before. He shoots casual, unassuming beauties-- fresh women with a distinctly urban appeal-- in their industrial habitats, juxtaposing soft flesh with sharp horizontals. Spears' photography explores the habitat of the contemporary woman and her relationship with an increasingly citified world. These photos are strange and awesome-- they make us want to get to know these women better, especially if they live in that apartment across the street.

Originally hailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Mike Spears is a photographer currently based in Brooklyn, New York. Spears has an eye for funny juxtapositions and striking compositions, using film to shoot his nudes. He hopes to one day 'be epic like [Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi] Araki'.
