We have been amazed by this kind of respected photography which is not based on digital skills like HDR or morphing things around or even gadgets but it is based on the photographer Jordan Matter’s rich imagination and his well crafted creative prescriptive.
We could not stop watching all of his collection, yeah we’ve watched it all and here is our favorite selection ready for you to enjoy.
From Jordan Matter biography:
I’ve been taking photographs for years. But so what? At last count I believe there were 1,567,892 photographers in New York City, and more are squeezing through the cracks every day. So who am I, exactly, and why am I in the mood to go against 1,567,892 to 1 odds? Well, I began my career as a professional actor, so I know about long shots. And photography really happened by chance.
I never planned to be a professional photographer. Actually, playing baseball occupied the first two decades of my life. After college, the transition to acting seemed like the most obvious choice. After all, they’re both highly competitive and immediately gratifying performance based careers. But photography? My grandfather, Herbert Matter, was a highly successful photographer, with projects commissioned by President Kennedy, Vogue, National Geographic and Harper’s Bazaar, and I spent much of my childhood with him in his darkroom. My father, Alex Matter, is a gifted film director whose work has been seen at the Venice Film Festival. My mother, Paula Feiten, was a successful Ford model (must be where I got my stunning looks). So being around a camera is definitely in my blood. Still, I wasn’t inspired. I mean, where’s the drama? Where’s the applause? Where’s the curtain call? I was enjoying success in acting, so I didn’t give photography another thought. That is, until I saw an exhibit by photojournalist Henri Cartier-Bresson. Then my attitude began to change. He had an extraordinary ability to capture a person’s essence and to tell a story. His subjects are always beautiful because they are human. Photographs like Richard Avadon’s image of a model hugging an elephant never really interested me, but Cartier-Bresson’s images of humanity moved me. I wanted to learn how to photograph people intimately. Soon it became a hobby. Then it became a passion. But I still never thought it would become a career.
