Matthew Lennert (Seattle)
I attended San Jose State University and The San Francisco Academy of Art College and was fortunate to be in classes taught by Steve Harper. There are a lot of night photographers who can trace their lineage back to this man. After school, I pursued commercial photography. I was very lucky to work with great mentors like Jim Karageorge in San Francisco, Rick Diaz in Miami and Flip Chalfant in Atlanta. I learned as much about life as I did about photography from them.

A very good friend of mine, Robert Tretsch, and I opened a small gallery in downtown Atlanta called Gallery Thirty Thirty Three. We showed my work occasionally as well as some other talented photographers. It was then that I began the Answer Yourself project which culminated with the book of the same name late last year. I came back to the Bay Area in late 2000. Photography and life are one in the same for me. matthewdonovanlennert.com

"When evening falls so hard I will comfort you
I'll take your part / When darkness comes
And pain is all around / Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down."

Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel, 1970
