Matthew Plexman: Clearcut Q&A Pt 2

November 2-30

Opening Reception November 10 6pm-9pm

Uncomfortably beautiful, large format panoramas of clear-cuts in Northern Ontario. Plexman presents these massively altered and rearranged landscapes not for what was taken away, but for what the loggers left behind, and how Nature reclaims and repairs the damage.

How did you start out photographing? 

When I was 11 years old, my sister gave me a plastic “Diana” camera for my birthday while our family was on a weekend camping trip to Pinery Provincial Park.  This was the start of my love for landscape photography- I had to go to the park gift shop twice to buy extra film.

Who or what inspires you

People inspire me on a daily level. There isn’t a day that passes that our existence here doesn’t fascinate or drive my curiosity. I’m especially drawn to the thumbprint of our time upon the landscape around us. As much as a portrait sitting can feel rewarding from the studio or location setting, I feel there those same principles can be reflected in a landscape or city environment. There is a much to say about your identity by how you live and go about your day, your interactions with the city around you and the place you call home. 
We are incredibly enthralling to watch and observe, never dull moment and a continual source of wonder for me as an artist.

What equipment do you use?

I use medium format Phase One XF camera bodies, with a 60 megapixel digital back and Schneider-Kreuznach lenses- some of the sharpest ever made. For my panoramics I have the camera mounted vertically on a Really Right Stuff pano head, and use either the Schneider 35mm or 55mm lens.  Generally, I capture at least 12 images, one every 15 degrees as I rotate the camera, resulting in a 180 degree view.
