One of my little side projects around here is to bring you beautiful images of vineyard and wine country landscapes on a fairly regular basis under the banner “Vinography Images.” I’ve had year-long partnerships with some of the best wine photographers in the world, and I’m thrilled to introduce my latest partnership with photographer Matt Wilson.
I first encountered Wilson through his portraits of some of Chile’s youngest winemakers, and went on to enjoy his excellent landscapes of South American vineyards. Matt lives in Chile and has photographed all over Chile and Argentina, as well as other wine regions around the world.
Matt was born in the U.K. and he studied at the International Centre of Photography in N.Y. in the early nineties, going on to become a touring music photographer in the USA, working notably in the Hip Hop scene, with artists such as Mos Def, The Roots, Method Man, Redman, and Common.
After moving to Chile 7 years ago he began working in the wine industry, photographing vineyards, landscapes, wine personalities including many portraits of wine professionals, from workers to owners.
Matt’s currently published books are: ‘Chile Uncorked’ which was published in 2007, following the highly successful exhibition of the same name; and Chile: Country of Wine and Mountains, published by Versant-Sud in Belgium (2009).
His work can be seen regularly in many global publications including Wine Enthusiast (USA), Decanter (UK) and Epicuro (Chile).
His stock photographs can be seen and purchased on his UK agency Cephas.
I hope you enjoy his pictures as your desktop backgrounds or wallpaper for the year to come.
