Matt always dreamed of traveling the world from a very young age. In 2015, he sold all his possessions, except his camera, and set off to live a nomadic life and become a location independent photographer. Photography gives him the ability to enter a new world, one very different from his own. The contrasts and similarities help him make sense of the world and our troubled times.
He is entirely self taught with a background in editorial work and fashion photography. He has been published in numerous magazines such as 5280, Lucy's, Papercut, and online with Photo Vogue Italia. Currently he is focusing his efforts on Travel and Humanitarian work. He realized that to find meaning in life he must strive to create work that matters.
Matt Forma was born in Denver, Colorado. He is currently in Bangkok, Thailand.
