Matthew Thorsen is a uniquely talented, award-winning photographer. Thorsen began his journey in photography at an early age as he founded and presided over his high school photo club. After leaving UVM as a photography student and concurrently winning Kodak's largest photo contest, he and his camera packed up and traversed Asia, "photographing endlessly," where Thorsen says he began to understand how to work with light. From there, he has amassed a library of images that run the gamut from the majestic to the macabre.
This exhibition includes a broad selection of Thorsen's interests including personal family photos, some of Vermont's most newsworthy individuals, and selections from his acclaimed Sound Proof multimedia exhibit of rock performance and ar#mce_temp_url#tist photos. To date, over 6,000 of his photographs have been published in various media. Thorsen's work has also been featured in over 50 gallery exhibits including the National Geographic Hall of Discoveries in Washington, D.C., Epcot Center at Disneyworld, Times Square in New York, and Vermont's capitol building in Montpelier, and the Governor's Gallery (Vermont), to name a few.
