Piece description from the artist
I was back in Scotland for a funeral, and it rained the entire week, terrible weather. I decided to make the trip up north to this location one day anyway. It rained the entire drive. Then my Dad and I arrived and the sky just split, gave me this awesome sunset on the left and the stormy sky on the right, and the minute the light disappeared it started pouring again.. Felt like a sign that I was where I was supposed to be, on the right path, or maybe a sign from my Papa that he made it wherever he was needed next. Or maybe I'm grasping for some hidden meaning. I'm not sure but either way it just felt right to be there in that moment.
Matthew is a 25-year-old photographer from Glasgow, Scotland and currently resides in the US. Matthew is an avid outdoorsman, and a self proclaimed nature nerd who absolutely loves to travel. What started as a simple boredom cure quickly developed into a passion and for the past 6 years, Matthew has not left home without a camera. He frequently takes photography trips across the country as well as out of the country to his favorite place to photograph, Scotland. As a self taught photographer, his career has been filled with many ups and downs, trying to discover what his main focus was with his art. Of course, being such a big fan of the outdoors, it seems only natural that his speciality would end up being landscapes. His goal with his work is to make the viewer feel like they experienced the scene first hand, to make them feel like they are there. Matthew hopes to one day make the move back to Scotland and make photography his full time career.
