MATT GATTON

Gatton is a pioneer of portrait photo-sculpture as a fine-art medium, having worked in the field since the 1980s. His portraits are visual poems, a photographic form of magical realism, which conveys not only the appearance of the person, their presence in an indexical way, but also expresses their essence, evoking their true spirit through collaged, dreamlike, imagery.
