Mathew Scott - Venice



I previously featured the work of Mathew Scott but wanted to showcase work from his new series, Venice, obviously shot along Venice beach. Not only is the project a lovely portrayal of Los Angeles beach culture, which hits close to home, I know how hard it is to get exposure for a project once you've done all the work and lived and breathed it.

As always, be sure to click images for larger views.

the solo portraits with the ocean as a backdrop remind me of Rineke Dijkstra's work

Yep, I see that. Biggest difference that jumps out at me is Dijkstra's use of flash.
