biography

Nationality: Canada
Matthew Lyn is a creative force as textured as his own life story. Son of a Chinese Jamaican father and Canadian mother, his visual inspirations hail from his homes on distant shores of Runaway Bay to those on the northern shores of Lake Ontario and encompass the mosaic of urban and rugged landscape he's travelled inbetween. His eye for fashion photography has been described as uniquely exhilarating and fresh, while holding true to a bold classic edge. Much like his history, his visual art transcends borders and boundaries. Lyn launched into his photographic journey in 2007, deeply moved by Jamaica’s coastal beauty. From there, he aggressively channeled his vision through experimentation, collaboration and mentorship from highly acclaimed visual artists. Despite no formal training, his early photos captured the attention of industry insiders. Encouraged by their support, Lyn solidified his unique style, developing the moody, grand scale fashion editorials that have become his signature. Andy Whalen, Executive fashion director for Vogue Nippon believes, "Matt is a young talent to keep an eye on. He has a vision that I find refreshing and inspiring." His portfolio is male-dominated, and features blue-chip names like Simon Nessman and Josh Beech; but again, Lyn avoids defining himself as a male photographer. For him, the subject matter is of lesser importance than the juxtapositions that drive him - the angular and the fluid, the light and the dark. He currently divides his time between New York and Montreal, Canada
