Matthew Brandt physically applies nature to his landscape photography (post 8 Chelsea)

Matthew Brandt has many series and exhibitions, but the photography series I was most intrigued by was the lakes and reservoirs series. Matthew Brandt takes lanscape photos of lakes and reservoirs and soaks the c-prints in lake water. The distortion is interesting and the idea behind him using the water from these places is intriguing.

He even goes on and produces his series Waterbodies as salt prints (such as we viewed in our houston trip) with actual sea water from the waterscapes he shoots with.


I like the idea of processing images and producing images with meaning and intension. I think that's why I'm interested in impressions of combing layers or images together to create images and recreate memories.
