      Cynthia Matthews is a nationally recognized
photographer whose work has been widely published
in books and periodicals, exhibited in group and solo
shows and acquired by corporations, museums and
private collectors.

    She was raised in southern Ohio near the family
farm. In 1970 she arrived in New York City and began
a career in photojournalism. By the early 1980s she was
photographing extensively for Town & Country magazine,
capturing the essence of country gentry and the sporting
world they inhabit. A painterly quality emerged in these
color photographs of foxhunts and field trials, stag hunts
and horse races.

    Just as her color images suggest a painterly quality,
Cynthia brings a similar lyrical elegance to her black & white
photographs; in particular, her series of evocative images of
New York in the snow.

          Cynthia continues to embrace the craft of photography
and finds a certain joy in printing and toning her own prints
the old fashioned way – in the “wet” darkroom. Besides
simply preferring silver gelatin prints, she likes to think of the
darkroom as a “garden of surprises and happy mistakes.”
