Artist Bio

Mat was born in Libya (when the country had a King) and raised in the UK. He was given a blue plastic camera when little, so naturally went on to study photography. After three years at the Plymouth College of Art & Design, he hit the streets of London in 1984 as a freelance photographic assistant. 

In 2009 he moved to Melbourne with his Australian-born wife. With the birth of his daughter in 2012, he became a full-time stay-at-home Dad. Between juggling the demands of a busy home life, he has continued to pursue his photographic craft.

“I’m drawn to journeys. I like the idea of moving through a landscape towards an unknown distant horizon. I love wide open spaces and their simplicity in shape and form. Little nuances in a landscape interest me. Geography and history play their part too, but I like to stand still and imagine the passing of time over the land”

Mat Hughes

With over 35 years’ experience, his craft bridges traditional wet-process film techniques as well as digital photography. Framing and presentation are integral to his process, and each is chosen carefully resulting in these finely crafted works
