Biography by Leigh Nolte

Matthew is one of Cape Town’s most renowned black and white photographers.


Rich with emotion and mood, his work pays homage to the Southern Cape’s rock coast lines and its inhabitants, vast beaches

and sweeping skies, as well as fog drenched Cape winter mornings and ramshackle up-country homesteads.

These scenes he has expertly captured in his series of photographic essays Moods of the Cape.


Matthew’s work is sophisticated, soft, intriguing and impressively varied.

His portfolio features unique photographic interpretation of some of the Western Capes most distinctive landmarks such as

Table Mountain and Cape Point. Immensely popular, his photography is a feature in

many homes, boardrooms and hotels in South Africa and internationally.


Originally from North Yorkshire, he studied photography at the prestigious New York Institute of Photography and then furthered his experience in London.

Enchanted with the Fairest Cape after a visit in 1995, he decided to make Cape Town his permanent home.

His choice of medium of black and white photography was inspired by the great exponent of the same,

Frank Meadow Sutcliffe who captured his iconic images in and around Whitby, North Yorkshire at the turn of the century.

Matthew is equally as adept at working in colour and his enchanting colour works are ever increasing in popularity.
