Based between London and Brighton, UK; Rosie Matheson is a documentary style photographer. Examining the emotional connection between people and places, Rosie searches for the extraordinary in the seemingly ordinary, exploring her fascination of photographing somebody else’s world.
Through personal, honest and revealing portraits, Rosie Matheson explores boyhood and masculinity.
“I started shooting these images late 2015, documenting how young men express themselves, capturing their emotions, looking at how they present themselves in everyday life. The project explores expressions of masculine identity at a moment when the subcultures which give young men a voice are increasingly invisible. Ultimately, the work is about people who don’t realise how special and interesting they are, and whose faces tell their story.”
‘Boys’ – the short documentary (shot entirely on super8) in collaboration with talented filmmaker Kaj Jefferies, will have it’s first, exclusive screening at this event.
This event is held in collaboration with Creative Debuts. Join them for live music, the first screening of Boys and the images from the series so far.
