Matthew Aldrich creates fine art images with varied aesthetics and representations. His subject matter can be quite eclectic, from landscapes, to classic still lifes, to scenes from varied urban environments. Throughout his work, one can find a common theme - social commentary.
Matthew utilizes film-based cameras to capture his images, and then digitally scans them for editing. This process allows him to maintain the unique look of film while achieving more editing control. He does not use digital manipulation, rather his digital editing mirrors traditional darkroom techniques. Final images are either from pigment-based photo printers or hand-printed on traditional photo papers with digital negatives. His fine art prints are to museum archival standards designed to last for generations.
