Matthew Finn (b1970 United Kingdom) has been working as a photography lecturer at West London University. He received an MA in Photography from Westminster University in 2007.
Matthew uses the people and events directly surrounding his life as visual references for projects that sometimes take years to realise. For his proposed Jerwood/Photoworks Awards project he intends to use the archive of his project Mother and recreate photographs, setting his wife in her own domestic environment to see how the images may change for the protagonists and for the viewer.
Jerwood/Photoworks Awards 2015
Each artist has received an award of £5,000 to support the making of new work for exhibition, with a significant production fund and mentoring support. The three artists will present their work in a group exhibition as part of the Jerwood Visual Arts programme which will open at Jerwood Space in November 2015 and tour to other partner venues including Impressions Gallery, Bradford.
