Matthew Pillsbury (American, born November 25, 1973) was raised in France by two American parents. He received a BA in Fine Art from Yale University, New Haven, CT, in 1995 and his MA from the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY, in 2004. In his work, Pillsbury explores what it means for humans to inhabit space. Using long exposures to track human movement in and out of space, the subjects of his photographs often appear blurred. In this way, his work juxtaposes the solidity of the space itself with the constant motion of human existence. His work is held in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, NY, the Whitney Museum in New York, NY, the Tate Modern in London, UK, and the Musée de Louvre in Paris, France, among others. Pillsbury was named one of the top 30 photographers of 2005 by PDN Magazine, and in 2007, he received an award from la Fondation HSBC in recognition of his photographic achievements. Pillsbury currently lives and works in New York, NY.
