biography

Nationality: United Kingdom
Self taught photographer Matthew Brookes was born
in England, grew up in South Africa and now lives
between Paris and NY. Matthew's early career as a
photographer began in South Africa but quickly
moved to Paris - this was a great influence on his
aesthetic as a photographer as he was fascinated by
the effortless simplicity of Parisian style. The
combination of French simplicity and his love of
nature and authentic imagery became a lasting base
to his photography.


Matthew's very goal as a photographer is to
photograph the soul of his subject - when he has
someone in front of his lens he likes to work from the
inside out instead of the outside in - for this reason
he loves to work with actors or models with a
sensitive character as they can be generous with their
emotions.


Clients include Armani, Berluti, Cartier, David Yurman,
Burberry, YSL Beauty, Dior Jewelry, Biotherm, Louis
Vuitton, Z Zegna, Tommy Hilfiger. Editorial clients
include L’Uomo Vogue, Vanity Fair, T Magazine,

Matthew also published his first book ‘Les Danseurs’
in 2015 - based on the Ballet Dancers from the Paris
Opera.
