i love these photographs from new york artist matt bango. he makes it look like it’s just another day in the park – wake up, stretch, sip some coffee and then take a few snapshots before you run off to face the day. real simple, unless you know what it’s like to photograph wild birds. you must dedicate hours to it, get up at the crack of dawn, be very still and stay focused, otherwise you won’t get any good shots off. not easy, unless you are talented like that (see below).
matt takes you straight into the forest with these pieces. one look and you’re right there in the woods with him, peeping quietly, admiring the light, listening for the calls and songs of the creatures flitting through the trees and feeling the crispness of the morning settle in around you. the quiet energy is dignified and powerful coming through these photos, and that is so special. even more special is the fact that he is a student at the rochester institute of technology!
i am looking forward to seeing the building and transformation of matt’s art as time goes by.
