Fine Art Photography

Oscar Matos Linares the fine art photographer (artist)

Oscar grew up in Puerto Rico, an hour’s drive from the El Yunque National Forest Reserve, the only tropical rainforest in the United States National Forest System, known for rare trees, lush flora and fauna.

While working on his Bachelor's of Arts in Mathematics in 1987, “my father gave me my first camera to take on my weekend camping trips into the National Forests”. This led him to a formal study of photography, taking classes at the university, then working independently with a professor who had an apprentice approach: “I learned by doing”. After two years of creating 100 images a week, studying the pantheon of photographer’s work, countless hours of time behind the lens, he had developed his “eye”: the world that he sees through the lens, and shares in photographic form to his audience.

Creation

When I start working on a new photo collection, I am initially inspired by emotions and life events. Each series prompted a reaction to various solutions to those life events. What inspires me may elicit something special to each one of my collectors. In time, I have learned that my ultimate goal is to create art that relaxes and calms my collectors and in the end, makes them think. This all encompasses something an old friend told me a long time ago, “We buy art to feed our souls”.
