Young photographer Matthew Brandt, based in Hollywood, California, has brought radical new experiments to the field of photography with his ingenious artworks that at times seem to make perfect sense, and at times seem to blow the mind away, but all of his pieces are beautiful and natural combinations for an rather experimental orthodox form of documentation. For example, the artist has done an entire series on lakes in which he soaks the photograph in the water of the specific lake which is pictured, giant panoramas of honeybees created by placing dead honeybees together in the shape of larger ones, portraits created by physical byproducts of the body of the person pictured, stars and galaxies created by cocaine on black velvet, and many other unique processes. Brandt’s work is one of constant experimentation of the history and substance of the subject as well as the history of the photographic process itself. Enjoy his work below!
