MMU Photography Graduate Matthew Williams

Now based in London, photographer Matthew Williams is building on his experience in the creative industries following his successful graduation from Manchester Metropolitan University. With a portfolio of work that concentrates of the barriers of relationships and life’s fleeting moments, Matthew has ambitions to complete an MA course in the next few years. 

“Photography is an excellent medium to do the things you want to do; and with that I find that I can explore my own interests through people (Portraits), space (Still Life) and time (Landscape). What Bloomed For Us was a project that started at the beginning of the year. I wanted to photograph couples and move beyond the barriers that are often placed in around relationships. It incorporated all of those spoken about elements into one and played on something I find evident in all of my photographs. A way of focusing on fleeting moments. Transient Works II is a collection of photographs that is taking these fleeting moments further.

Taking in life’s experiences is influence enough, but I am forever moved by todays leading contemporary artists. Photography from peers up to big names and iconic photographers of the past keep me thinking of other ways to explore the medium.

Having just completed a BA in Photography at Manchester Metropolitan University I now reside in London, interning for Bloomberg New Contemporaries, working as an artist, and starting up as freelance.

I have my sights set on a MA in The Netherlands in a few years, which is a goal I am working towards.”
