Matthew is a documentary photographer concerned with Human rights and social welfare.

A graduate of Newport University in Wales, his first vocation was as an internet entrepreneur and activist in the late 1990s. After a few years of developing the internet he moved to London to work with people directly. He found his skills in high demand and spent the next several years working with various NGO’s, community groups and grassroutes organisations. He helped setup and managed a community development project in Camberwell, south London, before returning to University to complete the life-long ambition of studying photography.

Matthew now works freelance and on commission for various clients which include the United Nations, the European Commission, the Norwegian Refugee Council and the NUJ. He publishes both internationally and domestically in a range of newspapers and magazines including the Guardian, Des Spiegel, the Telegraph, the Independent, the Mail, Express, the Times and Bild to name but a few. International projects include Womens rights in Palestine, the Indian occupation of Kashmir, Syrian Refugees in the Bekaa valley and human rights in Western Sahara.

Matthew is currently developing projects which utilise digital multimedia and social media to explore the developing potential of the photographic image.

Hi All,

Is anyone covering Kiev? I’m flying in from the UK next week, are there any restrictions on Armour, Gas Masks etc? Can anyone suggest a good hotel/hostel to hold up in?
