Showcase: Matthew Arthur Williams

"My work has always leaned heavily on the format of a journal. This body of work consists of a series of photographs, recordings and collections created during a trip to New York in 2013.
"The work will be exhibited in March 2015 at The Glad Café in Glasgow. Accompanying it will be a small publication, allowing me to take it a step further, connecting my findings and past experiences with the city, consciously considering how each image is presented in another format.
"After living in London, Manchester and Glasgow in a short space of three years I am aware that travel is one of the themes I carry with me – this outsider looking in. It also comes with the need to capture a fleeting moment, to slowing the world right down to that single frame. By not allowing the edge of the photograph to be the end of the story I consider ways to integrate the print making process with an aspect of collaging and layering."

Matthew Arthur Williams lives and works in Glasgow. He graduated with a BA Photography from Manchester Metropolitan in 2012.
