Matt Roberts is a New Jersey-based photographer and collage artist who has been active in photography since the 1970s. He studied photography at Hampshire College and in the MFA program at Pratt Institute. All of his work, whether it is in the genres of street photography, landscape, or family portraiture, is concerned with capturing moments, which while inherently “small”, convey an emotion – a sense of yearning, alienation, joy, or the simple pleasure of seeing something familiar in a different light.
A two-time recipient of Fellowships from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, his work has been shown in a wide range of venues in New Jersey, as well as in group shows in in galleries in New York, Vermont, Colorado, and Oregon.
Roberts recently retired from a 35+ year career as a marketing executive in the magazine industry, including positions at The New Yorker, Vogue, GQ, House Beautiful and others.
