Based in: Los Angeles
Matthew Brandt (born 1982 in Los Angeles) is no ordinary landscape photographer. His most recent solo exhibition, entitled Lakes, Trees and Honeybees and held at Chelsea's Yossi Milo Gallery, featured a series of works whose process of creation involved the use of elements from their subject matter-c-prints depicting Western US lakes and reservoirs, for example, were submerged for days or weeks at a time in water taken from these same bodies of water until the desired alteration in color was achieved, while both the paper and ink on and with which Trees were printed were made by Brandt from the trees he photographed in George Bush Park near Houston, TX. The photographer has also taken part in a number of group shows of late, including Surface Tension at The Center for Photography at Woodstock, Photography Is at Higher Pictures in New York, After Image: The Photographic Process(ed), curated by James MacDevitt, at Cerritos College Art Gallery in Norwalk, CA, MOTA at See Line Gallery in Los Angeles, The Crystal Chain at Invisible Exports in New York and New Photography in Palma at Mallorca Landings in Palma de Mallorca.
