Matthew Smith, Piermont, New York Member Since October 2010 Artist Statement I have been taking pictures since I was a teenager and I was given a cannon AE-1 by my brother who grew tired of it. I always took pictures because I found it interesting and soothing, it was and continues to be a very personal process for me. I take photographs of what moves me, abstract and otherwise. On here you will see my perspective of sunsets, wilderness and the Adirondack mountains which have always inspired me.
In the last 5 years I began to share my work with others, and the response was overwhelming. I take the photographs for me, I share them because it is a reflection of a time, place and "sense" that just moved me.
I hope you enjoy. I enjoy my time when I am out just looking around, in nature, and around the house, taking pictures, taking photographs of life.
