Work from (Un)Dress Yourself in My Love.
“Matthew-Robert Hughes’s artistic practice is fundamentally concerned with the self as subject matter for the camera, and acts as a demonstration of the role of photographic technology in individual self-representation. Throughout his working practice, Hughes has continued to use ‘time’ as a tool to explore different modes of the self within its own representation. His current work explores the history and the embalming nature of photography and its subject. This has been visualised by Hughes through the practice of hand crafting unique photographic art objects.” – Matthew Robert Hughes
