The resurrection series #4

One of the latest photographers to come from the streets, Matthew Schnickens is also a regular contributor to Better Never Than Late, a blog revelling street culture, menswear, going out and generally being sick. He conjures his lens into capturing the magic of urban landscapes - the tower blocks capture and radiate sunlight, which outshines their clich├ęd desolate texture and highlights the autonomy and buoyancy of living in urban neighbourhoods. Matthew emphasises that every aspect of our surroundings is of equal importance and each contributes to the atmosphere rather than pollute it, conceivably a metaphor for taking pride in and appreciating your social and cultural background.
