From skateboarding and graffiti to road trips with his buds, Matt Martin has grown up capturing life's positives on film negatives.
Matt Martin is a twenty-six-year-old gallery/zine-shop owner. A love for all things rare flows through this Brightonian’s veins, because when he’s not busy doing his thing as a curator, he’s reviving the long-lost medium of spool-wound photography.
When and why did you start shooting pictures?
This first camera I ever got was a Canon 35mm Sure Shot from my dad. When I was about thirteen I used to take photos of me and my mates riding bikes and skateboarding and then try to make magazines. I then got really into photography about the age of seventeen/eighteen at college. I was really into graffiti, so I used to shoot my mates painting, then print that out on photocopies, and wheat paste them around my home town.
