Born in Ottawa and raised on Fifth Avenue, Matthew spent his youth playing in the streets and exploring the back alleys of the Glebe. For Matthew, it was a great community to grow up in. Forty three years on, the sense of community remains the same –and he's still exploring.
"I present this series of photographs as a love letter to my neighbourhood – The Glebe."
Matthew uses conventional film for the majority of his work. He processes all of his film (4x5, 120, 135) using a developer he mixes himself that is made from instant coffee and other non-toxic household ingredients.
