In Flux #1
Mat Hughes b.1964 Mat was born in Libya when the country had a King and was raised in the UK. He was given a blue plastic camera when he was little, so naturally went on to study photography. After three years at the Plymouth College of Art & Design, he hit the streets of London in 1984 as a freelance photographic assistant. In 2009 he moved to Melbourne with his Australian born wife. With the birth of his daughter in 2012, he became a full time stay at home Dad. Between juggling the demands of a busy home life, he has continued to pursue his photographic craft. Mat`s craft bridges traditional handmade, wet-process and alternative techniques as well as digital photography. Framing and presentation are integral to his process, and each is chosen carefully resulting in these finely crafted works.
