Matthew Wylie Street Scenes

“The abstractions, at least to me, lead to a more interesting method of storytelling than pure documentary.” – Matthew Wylie

“Street Scenes” is a collection of street photographs taken in Toronto, Havana, Paris, and Berlin. While street photography is often used to document “life as it is,” Matthew Wylie chooses to reject this pursuit, using his surroundings instead as a canvas to capture and create his own view of the world and of art. Quite often, this entails Matthew’s use of the camera or the frame to “abstract” his subject(s).

While the photography community remains engulfed by controversies of “manipulation” vs. “reality,” artist Matthew Wylie is more intrigued by how the medium can break down these rules and impose the photographer’s own subjectivity onto the act.
