Untitled (Detached Garage), Saint. Paul, Minnesota, 2011
From the Detached Garage series

Andy Mattern makes photographs of familiar objects and landscapes to investigate the relationship between people and the built environment. Using place as inspiration, his projects often take the form of typological series that focus on the residue of human experience. Recently, he has explored subjects such as the chunks of dirty snow that build up on the wheel wells of cars, exhaust vents in homes, detached garages, and the hundreds of gloves accidentally lost in winter. He earned a BFA with an emphasis in photography from the University of New Mexico in 2002 and is currently teaching photography while pursuing an MFA from the University of Minnesota.
