Photography is an integral part of Matt Bushell's everyday life. Drawn to the urban environ­ment, he documents the frail beauty of once-lived-in spaces. He has developed a fondness for derelict buildings that have conceded to Mother Nature. His images breathe new life into beloved historical buildings by recalling their former beauty. Matt's images are highly formal in composition they are often symmetrically balanced and at times so tightly cropped that they verge on abstraction. His scenes are usually devoid of human figures, making them feel like a vision of a dystopian future. When a figure is present, the person is often unidentifiable, facing away from the camera to mimic the lone survivor.
