Matthew Papa


Matthew Papa (b. 1967 Detroit) is a New York-based artist working primarily in photography. He has an MFA in Advanced Photographic Studies from ICP/Bard College and a BA in Philosophy with High Honors from the University of Michigan. His undergraduate study of philosophy informs his artistic practice and he’s interested in photography’s ability to complicate meaning. Desire and the body are often subjects in his work because our ideas around them are rife with conflict. He has shown in numerous group exhibitions in New York City, Los Angeles, Berlin, Mexico City, Washington, D.C., among others and his work has been featured in Der Greif, The Fader and W Magazine.
