The picture is from Mat’s selection, ‘The Soul Of Music‘. He has been working on the album from 1993. The notion of this compilation is to emphasize the connection between music and nature. It depicts how the musicians correlate these separate entities through the soul of music. It stars artists modeling in places like the inhabited areas of a city, an empty parking lot, in front of a Chaplin film and so on. Their surrounding, in turn, is stimulating their vision from which they retract inspiration for their music. It is, without a doubt, a magnificent take on photography!
Other categories Mat Hennek has worked on includes – Lake Powell, Dream Catchers, Woodlands, Sounds Of Spheres, Mirages, Blue Range among others.
On 7th April 2017, there was the private opening of Mat Hennek’s photo exhibition, including the launch of his new book, Woodlands, published by Gerhard Steidl.
