ABOUT

Matthias Forster is curious and keen to experiment and move between the different fields of photography and fine art. His visual language is characterised by clarity, originality and playfulness in the use of light, form and colour. As a curious person, he does not follow a clear concept, but rather his instincts. In his work he is particularly interested in the traces and legacies of mankind and the tension between chaos and order.
After studying architecture, many years of experience in an established architecture firm and various travels, he completed his photography studies at the Swiss School of Journalism (maz) in Lucerne in 2018 and has since been working as a freelance artist with a focus on photographic author projects. His work has been shown at various exhibitions in Switzerland and Europe. An open and creative person, he welcomes any commission.
