Based between London and Brighton, Rosie Matheson is a documentary style photographer. Examining the emotional connection between people and places, Rosie searches for the extraordinary in the seemingly ordinary, exploring her fascination of photographing somebody else’s world. Her style is instantly recognisable and raw, intimate and personal, capturing honest moments and hidden vulnerability.
Her on-going project Boys has reached critical acclaim, premiering with a sold-out exhibition, photo-book and documentary on Dazed in July 2018, whilst one of her portraits from the series won the Portrait of Britain Award. Boys is described by Matheson as “an exploration of boyhood and masculinity, challenging the relationship between males and the idea of masculinity pressured by society”.
She has also spent her time photographing some of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming artists such as Loyle Carner, Slowthai, Col3trane, and Etta Bond. Previous clients have included Nike, Adidas, Kodak, Sony, Getty, i-D and the Financial Times.
