Matteo Delred grew up in South East London. He is based in Jerez de la Frontera, the South of Spain. His photographic art focuses on everyday subjects; the imagery representing selected memories. His work is defined by localness and the connections made from a life being lived.

Artist Statement

There is this intersection, between what is favoured and what is ignored; a middle-ground that speaks with the quiet intimacy of spirituality. The lens is not a barrier and the image is not the artwork. It is about the germination of ideas that come from life, and the "found" subjects that make it interesting to be alive.
