Matthew-Robert Hughes (b. 1979) holds a BA (Hons) in Photography from the London College of Communciation. His work has been exhibited in the US, UK, Canada and Spain. Awards and accolades include being shortlisted for the Saatchi 4 New Sensations (2008) and awarded the Nikon Discovery Award (20097).
Hughes' photographic work is centered on the crafting of unique hand-made C-Type prints, made in the darkroom and using traditonal and experimental printing processes to produce individual singular artifacts. According to Hughes, this project "is focused on the photograph itself as an art object, its time-based properties, and its effect upon the subject. Most importantly, This-Has-Them visualizes the embalming nature of photography."
