The third in our series of curated playlists comes courtesy of London-based Photographer Rosie Matheson. We first fell in love with her work when she launched ‘Boys‘; a nationwide exhibition showcasing the face of modern Britain through a series of intimate, stunningly shot portraits. She’s also shot some of our favourite artists; from Kojey Radical and Anderson .Paak to Little Simz and Loyle Carner. We caught up with her to find out what makes her tick, and more importantly, what’s on her stereo.
“Photography fundamentally, for me, is about telling original stories whilst stimulating thoughts and emotions,” says Matheson. “I’m a documentary style photographer based between Brighton and London. My work has been acknowledged by the British Journal of Photography’s Portrait of Britain Award and I’m a regular contributor to i-D, Wonderland and Wordplay Magazine.”
“I’m obsessed with the idea of capturing the extraordinary in the seemingly ordinary and forever inspired by visiting new places and meeting new people.” When it came to curating a playlist for Province, Matheson began drawing from her electic taste: “Music is always soundtracking my journeys/travels and I’m into everything from Leonard Cohen to A Tribe Called Quest.” With everything from the smooth vocals of Anderson .Paak and Lianne Le Havas, through to Punk, Ska and rounding things off with Province favourite MF DOOM.
