About the Author

Michael Cook is a Landscape Architect and Heritage Consultant, and although he presently lives in Melbourne, Australia he has been finding his way into underground places in Toronto and further afield since 2003. In 2015, he was named one of Canada's 100 greatest modern explorers by Canadian Geographic, alongside such luminaries as Ed Burtynsky, Les Stroud and Chris Hatfield.

In addition to this website, his words and photographs have been presented in exhibition form and published in books and magazines. Visit undergroundphotographer.com for more information about his practice as a photographer and availability to photograph or to consult on the imaging of your managed underground spaces.

Cook has lectured on topics related to infrastructure, wastewater and hydroelectric development. He is available to present on these topics, to serve as a design critic and reviewer, and to produce original commissioned photography of infrastructure and industrial landscapes.
