About Matthew Papa
Matthew Papa (b. 1967 Detroit) is a New York-based artist working primarily in photography. He has a BA in philosophy from the University of Michigan and an AAS in graphic design from Parsons, The New School for Design. His undergraduate study of philosophy informs his artistic practice and he’s interested in photography’s ability to complicate meaning. Desire and the body are persistent subjects in his work since our ideas about them are rife with conflict. He completed his MFA in Advanced Photographic Studies from ICP-Bard in May 2016.
