Matt Witt | About


I started taking photographs years ago to preserve my memories from backpacking trips throughout the American West. Over time, I have often focused in on specific details, stripped down to their essentials, as a way to more deeply appreciate the natural world.

I have been selected as Artist in Residence at Crater Lake National Park, John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, and PLAYA in Summer Lake, Oregon.

I also contribute as a photographer, writer, and trainer to local grassroots organizations in the area where I live near Talent, Oregon.

My photographs appear in each edition of the free emailed bulletin, World Wide Work, which alerts readers to new films, books, and music you may have missed. You can see the bulletin by clicking on the blog on this site.
