In his black-and-white photographs, Matthew Fuller combines a sense for the essence of his subjects with a painter's mastery of light. Though Fuller's works are in the spirit of photographers Eugene Atget and Edward Steichen, his singular vision was not developed in the academy but on the streets of Milan and Paris. Raised in rural Kansas, Fuller explored several divergent directions - including a stint in an ashram - before developing an architectural restoration business. Fuller's photographs of that work caught the eye of Texas Monthly's Domain magazine's art director, and Fuller's work for Domain launched his photographic career.
Working first on a wide range of commercial photographic assignments, then lured into the fashion world, Fuller honed his craft and art for several years in Milan and Paris. In the late 1990s, he committed himself entirely to photographic art. He explored the nude and then broadened his subject matter to include the architecture, landscapes, and people of some of the world's most engaging locations. Fuller now exhibits his art photography throughout the United States.
