Yes I to got to know Michael over a decade during which he moved his studio from Warren Street to Doughty Street and later to work from home in Finsbury.
The Camera he used I am pretty sure is the old 10x8 DeVere I inherited and used as a 5x4 with bag bellows! until I could afford the real thing. Such improvisations were what MBM thrived on and he even used converted items borrowed from University Hospital. He was a real professor of front projection for many years but serviced J&J and catalogue accounts later. I believe he and Cherry moved to Ireland. I recall him with great affection.
