Michael E. Norhtrup is an American photographer.
On his website, he states: « I love irony... not exclusively, but I have a particular appreciation for it. And it underlies a lot of my work. (...)

He published "Beautiful Ecstasy" (J&L Books, 2003), "Babe" (J&L Books, 2012) and "Dream Away" (Stanley/Barker, 2018).
