Painting with My Camera

Online Exhibition by Matt Makara 

Now on view! 

Photoworks is excited to feature photographic works by Matt Makara!


Matt is a multi-format photographer who utilizes digital, film and historic photographic processes to capture the natural world. He has an affinity for photographing trees and water, often while hiking, and enjoys experimenting with numerous techniques to inform and expand his creative process. In this series, titled, “Painting with My Camera,” Matt has created images with the intent of emulating the look of water color paintings, with the subjects being beach scenes at various times of day.

Handmade Photo Group

At Glen Echo Photoworks 

Every Monday at 6pm

We are a group of photographers who gather on Monday nights at 6:00 pm at Photoworks at Glen Echo Park to explore historic photo processes together, including but not limited to: cyanotype, salted paper, platinum/palladium and wet plate collodian. Sometimes we print; sometimes we chat and share ideas. Always we support and learn from each other.
