Matthew August is a commercial & editorial photographer based in Johannesburg South Africa. He is a passionate professional who has dedicated himself to his craft over the past six years.
His ability to capture and portray the every day hustle and bustle of the city in this body of work, aptly named 'Hometown Glory' exemplifies his documentary approach to subject matter and combine his experience and background to present a cache of his first fine art photography works.
The viewer can't help but be transported into a romanticised version of Johannesburg through these images which effortlessly evokes a feelings of familiarity. The symbiotic relationship between viewer and city is key to the relativity of this body of work.
