About the work
Matthew Pillsbury
French-American, b. 1973

Famed for his long-exposure photographs of interiors and cityscapes using only ambient light, Matthew Pillsbury’s images are consistently moody and atmospheric. Working exclusively in black-and-white, Pillsbury cites his most significant influences as Hiroshi Sugimoto and Abelardo Morell. He is fascinated by the role that technology plays in contemporary life: in 2004, he began documenting people watching television, the blinding white screens serving as the major source of light. “I don’t intend my work to be a salvation or a criticism of technology, but really just an opportunity for people to reflect […], ” he says.
