September 2013 Featured Artist
Using dynamic lighting techniques, Photographer Cornelius Matteo captures his vision of the excitement and energy of the 2013 Ashland Film Festival. Wine and hors d’oeuvres reception, and music by Alexis.
“It all began as a child, watching the great films. Life unfolded
before my eyes and I wondered what lay inside each actor’s
thoughts and feelings.
I questioned the role that light played in telling
each person’s story and studied how both lightness
and darkness illuminated character.
For the past 15 years I have worked in visual arts
both as a commercial videographer and a photographer. I was
also nominated for my work in Off Broadway for a Spotlight On
award, for best lighting design.
As a new-comer to Ashland, my joy comes from working with
clients who seek a unique and loving portrait of themselves, family
or friends.” – Cornelius Matteo
