Mathew Scott (b. 1978) was born and raised in Portland Oregon. At age 21 he moved to San Francisco, and in 2006, he graduated with a BFA in Photography from the Academy of Art.
Whether in landscape or portraiture, his camera brings into focus the paradoxical tensions existing just under the surface of everyday life. The juxtaposition of two Americas—the urban and the rural—overlap (and compete) in his photography. With a throw away gesture, he gives us Yin and Yang, light and dark, compassion and sarcasm.
Mathew currently splits his time between San Francisco, and Los Angeles, working on a Variety of commercial, and personal projects. You can also find his ever growing collection of stock photography sold exclusively through Veer/ Corbis.
