Artist Bio

Morgane Mathews is a photographer who was born in Mexico City and grew up in Paris and Montreal. She has been living in Somerville, Massachusetts for the past twenty years with her three daughters, husband, cat and dog. She is a  light fixated and curious photographer, an avid reader, tireless traveler, and a constant daydreamer. To enhance her creativity and to make a wide range of artistic visions evolve, she works on diverse projects. Although she enjoys photographing the city, she also finds pleasure in natural landscapes. At times she feels that a city is not so different from a landscape found in nature. 

What entices her to create art is the notion that by capturing the world through her lens, she can share her appreciation for qualities like color, pattern, and shape, hoping this will resonate with others. She has shown her work at the Griffin Museum’s Portfolio Walk and Gallery 4, Rockland MA. Her recent bodies of work help demonstrate her range: Plum Island Deconstructed – photographs of a wintry barrier island in northeastern Massachusetts and urbanscapes of Boston’s waterfront, that include various bridges, and an exploration of the city’s dense architecture in downtown areas, from dawn to lingering sunset and night. When not behind the lens, she enjoys transmitting and sharing her culture by giving private French and Spanish classes.
