摄影师Matthew Brandt 1982年出生于洛杉矶。他曾经为做广告摄影师的父亲担任助理,学习过绘画,也为建筑摄影师Robert Polidori工作过两年。在Lakes & Reservoir系列中,他为加州的很多湖和水库拍摄了“肖像”,待照片印出来后,他将它们分别浸泡在所拍摄的不同湖水/水中。照片产生了这样奇妙效果的同时,也被赋予了其应属的DNA,活了起来。

Matthew Brandt was born in Los Angeles in 1982. His father is a California-based advertising photographer. He worked with his father as a photo-assistant in his early adolescence. As a young man, Brandt briefly abandoned photography turning to painting. While studying at Cooper Union in New York he fully embraced photography as his medium of choice. Following college, Brandt worked for two years for architectural photographer Robert Polidori. Matthew took snapshots of various lakes and reservoirs in California and soaked them in water from each corresponding location. The results are pretty random and, in my opinion, all beautiful. What he ends up with are sort of “personalized” portraits of these lakes and reservoirs.
