Matt Brock

Urban landscape photographer

I'm based in London and have been a photographer for over 20 years, specialising in atmospheric urban landscape photography. With my work I explore the evocative, surreal and sometimes dark side of city existence in a visceral way. I use a variety of techniques including mobile photography (iPhoneography), digital Lomography, digital pinhole photography, and infrared.

I was an early pioneer of mobile photography and have been heavily involved in the worldwide iPhoneography movement since 2009. I continue to be an exponent of mobile photography as it transitions from a niche artform to a mainsteam medium.
