About Matthew

Whilst looking for places of isolation for my photography, I discovered many abandoned places, and was drawn to their beauty and solitude. In every place I visited, I could sense the many stories behind them and I try to capture this in my work, whether its a beautiful church that is being reclaimed by nature, a house full of decay and history, or a factory of machines that are now silent.

My photographs reflect my passion to translate scenes from the camera into print. Over the last five years, I has visited the Ukraine, Italy, Bulgaria, Belgium, Germany, Austria, France, Luxembourg as well as all over the U.K to uncover the “lost and forgotten”.

Inspired by the fantastical world of M.C Escher and H. R. Geiger, I like to leave dark areas in some of my work to allow our imagination to decide what could be hiding there.
