TERRENCE MATLIN IS A PHOTOGRAPHER STRADDLING NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY. Growing up about 20 minutes inland from the Jersey shore his bedroom walls were lined with as many images of rock n' roll heroes as they were with pages torn from magazines shot by Herb Ritts, Ellen Von Unwerth and Peter Lindbergh.

That inspiration has led to Terrence snapping pictures of his own. Whether documenting a band, working with models, or providing content for a business, he prefers shoots to feel low-key and casual—kind of just like hanging out. Equipment of choice? A fixed lens camera and an iPhone.

Beyond photography his background is in advertising. Years of New York agency experience in roles ranging from graphic designer to creative director have helped inform his vision. He still takes on a variety of non-photographic work in the field.

When not creating visual work Terrence heads to the sonic. As a cowriter for two German bands it would not be unlikely to find him at a recording studio in Berlin at any random moment—probably with his camera not far out of reach.
