Hello Matthew, thank you for this interview. What are your main interests as a photographer? 

Thanks for the opportunity. Like many other photographers my main interest in photography began as a way to access or give myself reason to access places otherwise unreachable. Over the years my interests have changed a lot, but if there is one that has been constant, it’s using the camera as an excuse to make my way into places unknown.
