the photography of nathaniel matthews
There is a growing contingent of young photographers who live their lives around the pictures they take—and take those photos on film. Much about this group of young artists lifestyle and dedication is truly inspiring, Nathaniel Matthews is one of them. The 21 year old Staten Island native possesses a resume that includes everything from lookbooks and T-shirt designs to zines and flyers for punk shows. The photos Matthews takes embody the feeling of a familiar memory, with trips to the beach or an apple orchard, and friends climbing trees. There’s a pattern of raw and youthful rebelliousness like the work of Ryan McGinley or Larry Clark’s, but this photographer definitely has his own aesthetic. Visit
and lose yourself for a while…get young, rebellious, and inspired.
