Matthew Willman’s images span a vast expanse of people and places that when viewed through the mosaic of life provides an intimate window into who we are and what we shape ourselves to be. Some spaces are painful whilst others liberate us. Yet in all these experiences it remains Willman’s nature to accentuate that which brings life, shares life and celebrates this short window we have to create life.
Photography is the marriage of two elements. The first being ‘Imagination’ and the second ‘Reality’. The art of ‘seeing’ is the ever present tension between these two dimensions. The former being a predetermined life rolled out mechanically, governed only by time and the latter the remarkable ability to capture the miraculous from out the ordinary. The extraordinary that becomes timeless.
