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.

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.

“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.”
