Matt Francisco explores the drastic changes in light we experience every day. With a focus on color, line, and shape, he deconstructs space into the graphic elements that make up the conditions we inhabit. Using film and digital cameras, he reveals the impact of light on how we interpret and react to our surroundings— both at night and in daylight.
Matt is currently a student in his final year at American University, where he serves as a Co-Director for the student-run Photo Collective— an organization that serves to spread photography resources, offer exhibition opportunities, and inspire students to learn more about photography and fine art. He is also a teaching assistant for darkroom photography classes.
He has exhibited at Studio 1469 and The Bridge Cafe in Washington, D.C., and has featured his work in the American University Literary Magazine (AmLit) as well as books and zines published by the AU Photo Collective. His commercial work has been published in The New York Times, Forbes, Adweek, and WUSA9.
