There’s nothing more fascinating than looking at candid shots of the unassuming public. Those shots become even more interesting when a skilled street photographer finds the sweet spot timing of the perfect juxtaposition. Matt Stuart, is one of those photographers. Raised in North West London, and after some time on the skateboard, Matt attended the School of Visual Arts in New York and discovered his passion. Now back living in London, Matt hits the streets on a regular basis, for his own work, or for commissioned images.
Blake Andrews blog, B, let’s us in on What Was He Thinking?
I am not sure which came first, being nosey or an interest in ‘street photography’, but a fascination with people and the way they live their lives is why I enjoy the business so much.
I can’t hide behind lights and technology, I am reliant on a small Leica camera, patience and lots of optimism. But what I get in return is the chance to make an honest picture which people know immediately is a genuine moment and which hopefully burrows deep into their memories.
Matt was also commissioned by the Tate Modern in London, to photograph museum goers…
