Matt Stuart (b. 1974) was raised in the leafy suburbs of Harrow, North West London. He admits to a less than distinguished school career. However, was called upon aged 11 to play a trumpet solo in front of the Queen Mother. Her Majesty’s reaction is not recorded. A little later, in 1986, Matt discovered skateboarding after watching the film “Back to the Future”. Skating occupied his every waking moment until 1994, when he looked up from the half-pipe and noticed that girls had got a lot more interesting. He also indulged in a brief, ill-advised affair with Kung Fu. Matt’s father, keenly aware that his son would never be the next Bruce Lee, introduced him to photography, handing over books by Robert Frank & Henri Cartier-Bresson. Ever since then, photography has been Matt’s overriding passion, although he’s still quite interested in skateboards and girls.
Setanta Books published Matt’s second photobook, Into the Fire, back in 2020. But we also have a wide range of his other books, prints and posters available below. Such as his critically acclaimed All That Life Can Afford.
