We are honored to have Matt Weber, @matt.weber.photos , as an MSPF 2019 Guest Speaker.
Weber was born in NYC 1958 and studied oil painting with Nicolai Abracheff who was one of Picasso's contemporaries and a noted cubist as well. He went to Music & Art high school but dropped out to pursue "art" on New York's subways. Weber is completely self-taught in photography, although he did use all three of the photo books written by Ansel Adams to learn.
He started taking photos of the NYC streets while he was driving a Yellow cab back in '84. The things he had been seeing late at night were so intense, that he always found himself saying, "I've got to buy a camera!"
A few years later instead of considering himself a cabdriver with a camera, He knew he was a photographer with a taxi.
His monograph, The Urban Prisoner was published by Sanctuary Books in 2004.
He has been published in Popular Photography, Photographica, Hamburger Eyes and many other
publications. Harper Levine of East Hampton New York has represented his work since 2007.
His monograph Street Trip was published in 2019 by Carpet Bombing Culture.
Several of Webers prints are in the collection of Todd Oldham, Harper Levine and Richard Prince.
The official Miami Street Photography Festival at @historymiami runs Dec 5 -8 this year during the amazing Art Basel Miami Beach Week. Come join us for an amazing long weekend!
