Matthew Fleming, a talented photographer hailing from Blackburn, Lancashire, has always had a passion for capturing the world around him. From a young age, he began working seriously on his craft, and in 2021, he embarked on his professional photography career. Now based in the North West of England, Matthew has been creating captivating visual narratives, one of which is the photobook titled “LA1”. This book, printed by Ex Why Zed, is a dark, moody, yet gloriously uplifting photographic journey through Lancaster, a city rich in history and culture.
The LA1 photobook is a testament to Matthew’s keen eye for detail and his ability to capture the essence of a place through his lens. It’s a collection of black and white photos, each telling a unique story about Lancaster. The book is printed on 130gsm Silk, giving the images a smooth finish and adding extra punch to the black and white photos. The slightly thinner than normal, 200gsm cover, allows it to open effortlessly, making it a pleasure to flip through.
The LA1 photobook is an A5 book with a 4pp cover printed onto 200gsm Silk. It features a full colour print throughout its 52 pages, all trimmed, collated, and perfect bound. The use of Silk stock for the pages gives the images a smooth finish, enhancing the visual experience for the reader. The cover, slightly thinner than usual, allows the book to open effortlessly, inviting readers to delve into the photographic journey that Matthew has curated.
Matthew’s work on the LA1 photobook is a testament to his talent and passion for photography. His images capture the essence of Lancaster, from its historic architecture to its vibrant street life. The photobook serves as a visual journey through the city, allowing readers to experience Lancaster through Matthew’s lens. The use of black and white photography adds a timeless quality to the images, further enhancing the visual narrative.
