Matthew Clark, b. 1983 in New York, NY. How and why a New York City schoolboy found himself daydreaming of far off places and crashing blue surf is unknown. Why those real life images, never seen in person, were tugging at his chest can't be said. All we know is that the ocean captured him one day, held on, and has yet to release. Matthew was awarded the 2nd Annual Follow the Light Foundation Grant presented by Surfing Magazine in 2007. He's currently represented by 3 galleries both in the U.S. and Internationally. Matthew's images can be found anywhere from the cover of a magazine to the NYC transit system, from the streets of Paris to the center of Times Square. His cinematography has been featured in Innersection as well as SIGHT|SOUND which was nominated for best cinematography at the Surfer Poll Awards 2011.
