A portfolio that speaks volumes: Matt Portch

A portfolio must make an impact, and Melbourne photographer Matthew Portch achieves this with his large format book featuring red, white and blue that complement the large format images of North America on the inside. We ask him about the process of putting it together.

Matthew Portch is a Bristol born lad who now lives in Melbourne, Australia. After a successful career in graphic design, photography captured his interest. He was particularly inspired by the work of North American large-format colour film photographers of the 1960s and 1970s, which is evident in his latest portfolio. Rather than combine a variety of images from different commercial and personal projects, his folio focuses on a single photographic series that walks the line between quietly understated and high impact. We asked him about the process of putting it together.
