Before the internet co-opted everyday life as a marketing tool, photography was deeply personal for me. It served to capture impactful, exciting, intimate moments - sometimes to share with others and sometimes so I’d have something meaningful to look back on. Photography was fun, meaningful, and raw, but somewhere along the way those qualities were lost.
The few pictures shown here are snapshots of new experiences, taken many years ago as a way to remember what those moments felt like. They’re emotional and they remind me why I ever took pictures to begin with. In an effort to hit reset and return to that mindset, I’m taking a step back to rethink how I share work. Though this site will still serve as a portfolio, it’s more likely that it will function as a time capsule of sorts. Thanks for visiting.
See you soon, Matthew
