Artist Profile Matthew Brandt

Matthew Brandt

Inspired by generations of landscape photographers and having closely studied the history of the photographic process, American photographer Matthew Brandt makes pictures using the physical matter of the subject in the development process. He experiments with many different items to make his own paper and ink, as well as using the items to physically affect the photograph after printing. Brandt's colorful, washed-out, and oddly shaped photographs are one-of-a-kind, as his printing methods make it nearly impossible to create duplicates.
