Matthew Hood. Photographer. Montreal.

Back in 2005, my homie Matt Hood and I went to see the movie The Constant Gardener , about a British activist/journalist in Northern Kenya. Matt was clearly affected by the film and expressed his desire to visit Africa himself and document the happenings through his camera... I agreed that this would be rad, but was totally surprised/impressed when I learned that he'd booked his flight to Uganda and was to photograph the IDP camps. On his 2nd trip to Africa, I realized that this was just the beginning for Matt, and that he was living his (the) dream of being a photojournalist... his focus and sincere commitment to the craft continues to inspire. After recently releasing his official photo site, I'm so proud to feature some of his beautiful work on the old blog.
