Matthew's current work is titled 'Mimesis'. This work will culminate in a book consisting of multiple chapters which are exhibited as they are produced. He has recently exhibited bodies of this work in the UK, Europe and New York.
Matthew's freelance background is in commercial fashion & advertising photography. He has worked extensively with international clients including French Connection, Nicole Farhi, YMC and Pantene.
Technically his work spans many genres and mediums including large format hybrid capture and output, contemporary digital capture/ workflow, emerging technologies including 3D scanning, and historical techniques such as wetplate collodion.
Matthew graduated in Photography from The Surrey Institute of Art & Design. He then went on to study an MA in Photography at the London College of Communication (LCC), where he won the prestigious Sproxton Photography Award for his work The Rise & The Fall.
For his degree, Matthew produced the work 'Tautology', consisting of two volumes of a photographic book. The design of the book and the work inside engaged with museum culture and the photograph as a document. One book contained images of Storage aisles. The second book contained images of library stacks. This project represented the start of his ongoing investigations into 'the gap between vision and knowledge' that is a lasting theme in his work.
