Blog - thoughts, travels, insights and meanderings
Blog of night, travel and fine art photographer + cut paper artist Matt Hill | Queens, NY. Join the fun!
My lack of tangible art to show is largely due to working hard on other arts - business and leadership. It's most evident in National Parks At Night (now one year old!) and in my daily efforts at my main source of income - the day job. But I am focusing on growing so that there is more room to make the art that matters to me.
Here is a little glimpse of what I have learned with a podcast called Obscure Entrepreneur with James Murphy.
I was honored to contribute some of my paper fashions to the Quintessence theater's production of Marlowe's Doctor Faustus, which premiered yesterday night in Philadelphia.
The paper wings adorn opposing angels who torment Faustus whilst he makes poorer and poorer decisions. Here are some samples from the show:
It's remarkable to be included in such a passionate act of art. The theater company is non-profit, yet goes to great pains to make sure the actors get compensated for their craft. And craft it is, for I was drawn into the play with ferocity and enjoyed the dark humors, struggles and relentless creativity.
Special thanks to my friend Chris Llione for considering me for this epic spectacle.
Please make some time to see the show. Here are the details:
April 2 - April 24, 2016

I'm delighted to share something different than my usual fare for you - a fun listen as Allan Weitz, Levi Tenenbaum and I waxed technical and philosophical about 2015's most interesting cameras. That was fun! Listen below or here.
