Matt Cavan (formerly Matt Durrant) is a visual art working across mixed media artist based in Bristol. Matt is a recent graduate, completing an MA in Photography at Falmouth University in 2021. 

Matt takes inspiration from literary sources, including fairytales and gothic novels to photograph locations which then evoke other-worldy scenes, shrouded in mystery.

 

Part of the reasoning behind this is that photography offers an outlet for Matt to escape when he struggles living with his mental health in the present and can feel truly free in the outward exploring of his imaginations. 

Alongside photography, Matt uses a range of materials and techniques to create these parallel environments, where everything is not quite as it seems.

 

This sense of uneasiness is what propels Matt into using photography as therapy, as it helps to blur the lines between his subconscious and the outside world.
