Matthew Upson is a Wimbledon, London based photographer (SW19). He seeks locations that have meaning to a sitter in order to create a portrait that reflects the sitter’s character. When his Grandmother passed away in 2008, He found photographs of his father and aunt as children as well as other family members. This discovery made him realise the importance of the printed image as a way to preserve family history. In the digital world we live in, Matthew believes that printing photographs is very important.
