Here's a guy who I can really identify with. He's an ex-Newcastle photographer who now lives in Stirling just a 90-minute drive from my home in Carnoustie. I came across a video (below) he'd made of his images and saw some of my own photography in there.
When I checked out his website, it quickly became apparent why that should be. He says of his work, "My photography is heavily influenced by my love of film and I aim to capture images that have a cinematic feel to them. Solitude, peacefulness and remoteness are themes that are explored throughout my work."
I could have written that myself. Solitude, peacefulness and remoteness are good proxies for the type of photography I like best. Matt's not entirely film-based as he uses the odd digital thing as well but I enjoyed viewing his medium format photographs in the video and thought you might, too.
Matt says the images were taken using a variety of medium format cameras - Minolta Autocord, Kiev 60, Holga 120N and a Holga Pinhole - and the film used was Ilford HP5+ and Kodak Tri-X. Most of the cityscapes are from Stirling whilst the seascapes were taken in Northumberland, England.
After viewing, I'd urge you to take a look at Matt's website where there are links to his Flickr and 500PX portfolios as well. Isn't the internet a great way of killing time? It certainly does a sterling job of keeping me from all those DIY jobs around the house I should be tackling...
