Even though she is only 22, Rosie Mattheson has been taking pictures for a while. Her grandfather worked for Kodak, and she had cameras all over the house as a kid. She quickly fell in love with the play between light and lens.
In high school, Rosie adored the quiet and enchanting world of the dark room, and gravitated towards analogue cameras seamlessly. In digital photography, there are many people who can alter the outcome of an image, Rosie finds that shooting analogue allows her to capture what she wants, how she wants – giving her more artistic freedom to perfect her personal style.
Her project, Boys, began in 2015, and aims at capturing the “softer side” of masculinity, exploring the new ways boys express themselves today.

Alberto Giacometti, was born in Switzerland to an artistic family, his father was a renowned painter, and Giacometti was taught to sculpt and paint from a young age. In 1922, he moved to Paris to study sculpting under an associate of Rodin, living and working in a small, dusty, and dilapidated studio in Montparnasse. In this humble space, he created some of his most famous works, which are today considered some of the most important Surrealist pieces of last century. Giacometti is known for showing the humanity in his sculptures, they are tall, thin, spindly and looming. Leaving the horrors of World War II was a difficult task, and his artwork reflected this pain, the figures seem lost and clamouring for substance and meaning. While the show has been criticized for not providing a true analysis or dis...
