The Golden Age of Night Photography
Matt Hill has pursued a fascination with the dilation of time by combining light, motion and long exposure photography for 25+ years. His explorations of the pristine landscapes of America’s National Parks, combined with his creative edginess, equals a body of work that reveals the beauty in darker side of landscape photography and night portraiture. Matt has two guiding questions: 1) “What if?” (then act) and 2) “Does it make me uncomfortable?” (then do it, because uncomfortable equals the greatest creative growth.) Learn why Matt believes we’re in the golden age of night photography.
Matt Hill is an artist, educator, co-founder of National Parks at Night, teaches workshops with Rocky Mountain School of Photography, CreativeLive, lectures at WPPI, Photo Plus Expo, explores fine art in his project NIGHT PAPER and makes cut paper art in his studios in Queens and Catskill, NY.
