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

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

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.
