Work / Photography

Matt Hass’ wonder-filled photos are a brilliant mix of cinematic happenstance

After an enjoyably long time in the personal chapter of Matt Hass’ portfolio it’s hard to tell what’s real or not in his images; they’ve got a bit of cinematic noir about them with their uncannily-lit visions of utter randomness that must be staged but are so effortless they just can’t be. Dirty snow falls off a dark building, mirrors reflect architecture but look like open windows, serendipitous colour matching, night photography in which light becomes solid, day photography in which light dissolves solids – all sorts of visual trickery teamed up with those inexplicable moments of aesthetic happenstance. Matt Hass’ work is good, very good, but then surely that is no accident.
