THE ART AND DESIGN OF MATTHEW COGLIANESE:
As a Chicago native growing up on Chicago’s south side, I was always inspired by the diversity and culture of the city. From an early age, I’ve always been a creator working in different mediums such as music, architectural drawing and painting. However my first real artistic love or obsession was “Computer graphic design” All elements of this medium have fascinated me, even until this day. Now with over 15 years of professional graphic design work under my belt, I am very thankful and grateful that my life has unfolded the way it has. I love my work and continuously am striving to perfect my craft.
I really began shooting in 2009 when a friend showed me an “HDR” photograph instantly sucking me into the world of Digital Photography. I was amazed with how vibrant, detailed and sharp the image was and absolutely had to know how to do that. Within a week or so I bought a my first DSLR (Pentax k20d) and taught myself how to do HDR photographs by bracketing and using adobe bridge. With starting photography early in 2009, I took just over 7,000 pictures experimenting a lot with HDR in that first year, with some 5,000 of those pictures coming from a 2 week 2100 mile road-trip across Italy, Germany, and France. I now try to do at least one trip a year to photograph new material for my artwork.
