Michael (we call him Mike) Frank was born and raised in the 419. His photography can be found in many private collections and most recently, in a solo show at Relax It's Just Coffee in his hometown of Mansfield. Mike came to photography just a few years ago, but has rapidly developed into one of the most prolific and insightful chroniclers of Northern Ohio's rural / industrial heritage. You can see Mike's work on his Flickr page.
