Current Exhibition:

Walls Exhibition by Matt Maber.

June to July 2016.

A Portsmouth based street photographer, Mathew Maber, has spent a number of of years documenting street artists and their work.

Photographing both close friends and internationally renowned artists, he managed to capture meticulous detail, the artist’s paraphernalia, as well as the finished pieces.

“I picked up a small, tactile Fuji X100 digital camera a few years ago an it immediately fired my interest in film photography. I’ve since acquired many film cameras and started many projects including portraits, the everyday ‘quotidian’ street life, my seaside town of Southsea and the local football teams shadow over the local residents”

These photos of street artists and their work have been made over a number of years with a mixture of both film and digital cameras.
