Michael Corthell (b.1950) is a New England-based, self-taught artist working in photography, mixed media, and ceremony. He is also a master’s trained transpersonal psychologist with an interest in indigenous spiritual traditions.

His first solo exhibition of personal photography, “Night Light”, was exhibited at the City Hall Gallery in Cambridge Massachusetts, and a second solo exhibition (displaying both his photography and mixed media art) was held at Bentley University

In 1997, his art making was put on hold, to focus on a graduate degree in Psychology, a career in Labor and Employee Relations, and to raise his family. He returned to exhibiting art in 2015. Since then, his images have been included in numerous juried exhibitions, both nationally and internationally including: the New York Center for Photographic Arts, the Cape Cod Art Center, the Bromfield Gallery Boston, the Rockport Art Museum, the PH21 Gallery Budapest Hungary, and the Glasgow Gallery of Photography Scotland.

Corthell has also collaborated with other artists on various public art projects, including winning first prize (three times) in the annual Ipswich Sand Castle Competition.
