Matthew Neal


I was born in a city that was once the backbone of America. A place that was the heart of soul music in the 60’s and 70’s. Detroit is my home. My grandmother & uncle have a strong artistic background and I was no different. I fell in love with photography and was mesmerized by the role symmetry plays in everything we do. In 2014, at the age of 20, I quit my job in Detroit & moved to Brooklyn, New York to enroll in a volunteer program that helps millions of people globally. Once my time in the program was complete I moved to Harlem, New York.

While living there my desire to create art through photography became insatiable. In 2017 I got married to my beautiful wife Cheyenne, and we moved to Thailand to start a new life in Asia. Photography is no longer just a hobby, it’s my most authentic means of expression.
