Like the English travel books Bruce Chatwin who delivered a incredibly sensitive and humanistic vision of a world now lost forever, photographic wandering Matt Wilson, also -trotter Anglo globe – Saxon times produced by some pictures of the various countries he travels without a priori, and depending on the mood and meetings.
Few indeed, but so special, these modest photographs, even innocuous in them are, in addition, presented – against the current trends in contemporary photography – in such small dimensions that we are obliged to stop and scrutinize more closely. The image is usually somewhat damaged because movies sometimes out of order that the artist uses. The visual result is opalescent with a very present grain and a decadent light causing intimate shadows in the night scenes rendered smoky and foggy in the daytime landscape. This technique of shooting “random”, which incorporates the photographic accidental vision based language Matt Wilson. All this ends up view to trouble us, little by little, magnetized us and make us switch to a poetic and timeless.
As and when this structure writing all by visual frame, loosely narrative, which leads us into fictional worlds to the limit of a waking dream.
– Christine Ollier
