Matt Conti

Matt uses photography to explore the mood of a place. He primarily focuses on urban scenes, seeking to unveil architectural character and street life. Going beyond typical cityscapes, he treasures all types of views at day or night.

Initially, he documented the fabled streets of the historic neighborhoods in his hometown of Boston and New England. In recent years, he has expanded his portfolio by researching and visiting several U.S. and international cities.

With a background in community news, he also enjoys photojournalism and street photography projects. Further, he occasionally escapes gotham-like city centers for quaint small towns or to visit a natural wonder of the world.

In exploring the urban landscape, Matt looks for details within familiar elements of a destination. From the grand cityscapes to the intriguing nooks and crannies, he seeks alternative ways to highlight urban features. This is often accomplished by bending time through the light trails of night photography or calming the city bustle in long exposures. He often uses patterns and reflections to help frame the focal points within his photographs.
