Graham A. Matthews interest in fine art photography builds upon 40 years freelance experience shooting everything from sport to fashion.
The core of his latest work centres around examining 'perceived truths and harsh realities', whether that's photographing the poor conditions of rural India, or discovering the hidden realities all around us.
Influenced by such artists as Joan Fontcuberta, Susan Hiller, Picasso, Man Ray, Salvador Dali and Sebastião Salgado, Graham's work seeks to challenge established beliefs and our preconceived ideas of life, death and reality.
His latest work examines the 'persistence of change' highlighting the toxic relationship we have with our existence and how our lives are regularly being transformed at an unprecedented pace. Whether that's the environmental damage we're doing to our mother earth or the constant pressure on individuals struggling to keep up with societies changing values or our personal struggles to ward off our inevitable demise, the persistence of change is all around us, permeating into every aspect of our lives.
