This Is Me! A Retrospective of the work of me by Matt Field
"Local photographer, and adopted Geordie, I returned to photography in 2007 after a 20 year break. Working totally in the digital medium, a mix of dSLR and pocket cameras, I have spent the last 3 years building up a portfolio of work which documents my life here in the North East, and my travels around the UK.
With the use of digital stitching, and HDR processes, much of my landscape work contains large set piece elements, notably, the coastline of the UK, “Of Iron Men and Windmills”, and the hills of Northumberland. To counter the rural imagery, the everyday life in Northumberland acts as inspiration, from the stark graffiti work, “Terminus”and the sky sculpture, “Vapour” to the humour that is “Spray”.
Recently, I have moved back technology wise, and have enjoyed the creativity that using cameras such as found on the Apple iPhone allows. More than anything, as in "Coo", it brings an immediacy to my work.
This year, has seen a shift in the emphasis of my photography. As part of that, this exhibition aims to give a view on that first phase of my work, as I begin to expand into more studio based imaging."
