“Matthew Blum’s photography is a combination of machination and the sublime; a rusty nail awash in ripples of soft rose petals in a day-old city sidewalk puddle.”


Matthew Blum is a successful photographer, cinematographer, and mixed-media artist who enjoys mixing current technologies and practices of the past. Blum is proficient in digital photography and the use of Lightroom and Photoshop but enjoys the challenge of film (roll and sheet), black and white developing, and printing on silver gelatin.  He also experiments with alternative processes such as palladium printing, ambrotype, and lithophane.
