Matt on why he shoots film:


"The vast majority of my photography is focused on black and white cityscapes or seascapes. I predominantly shoot on medium format film. My reasoning for shooting on film are twofold. Firstly, there is the purely aesthetic quality of shooting medium format film. I find the tones and grain of film to be very complimentary to the style of photography I aim to produce. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, is the slower, methodical pace of medium format photography. I think I needed that time and space in order for my photography to evolve and develop.”

Matt on his black and white work:


"The images I create are very personal to me, and most probably say more about me as a person, and in a more articulate way, than I could ever express in words. I value feeling and emotion in my work above all else and I hope this comes across in the images I create. Photography is a great escape for me and I often try to capture feelings of peacefulness and solitude in my work. The empty streets, the heavy fog, the quietness of the early morning: it’s a world which I’m very happy to inhabit - far removed from the realities of modern day life.”
