Photos by Matthew...a picture is worth a thousand words...
Working with iconic visionary, Matthew Rolston, is like having a lightning in a bottle experience. He lives in a stylized, visual world creating fantasy based on his feelings and intuitions about a particular subject. “There is no ‘real’ real. There is no objective reality. For me, there’s only expressive reality.”
Renowned for being a creative genius across many platforms, Matthew’s first love was photography, where he perfected his signature lighting techniques and detailed approach to art direction and design. After being discovered at Art Center College of Design by Andy Warhol, Matthew quickly rose to fame and began shooting covers and editorial assignments for Rolling Stone, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Vanity Fair, W, GQ and Cosmo. He’s directed thousands of photo shoots, extending that vision into the moving image, including over 200 music videos (Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, etc) and 100 commercials, particularly called upon by fashion, beauty and celebrity clients including Revlon, Amazon.com/Fashion, L’Oreal, Estee Lauder, Clairol, Levi’s Pantene, Gap and Ralph Lauren, to name a few. He is considered one of the most influential artists with beauty/fashion/luxury/celebrity projects and has evolved his career to include creative direction and brand development.
