imagePart romantic, part poet, Matthew Coleman spends his days continuously hunting for beautiful things to take pictures of, or things that make him laugh. His youth was mostly spent at cinemas or in video stores, his first obsession, where in his early twenties he shot a series of short videos before discovering the magic of books. This fueled his second obsession in life, where he spent a couple of years co-editing Scarecrow, a literary blog, whilst writing erotic stories and pulp smut (there’s that juxtaposition again).

Knowing little about the technical process of photography, he spent a two-year period assisting three photographers, bombarding them with every kind of excitable question he could think of, from the rational to the sideways. Thankfully, Nick Ballon, David Ryle and Mark Cant were patient, kind souls, and all wondrous mentors to him, taking him under their wings and showing him the proverbial ropes.

imageThat swiftly brings us to the here and now, where he still has a tenacious drive to uncover beautiful and amusing moments, to unearth and document them as an observational photographer who is seduced by the world around him.
