While some people try their best to avoid ever coming near an abandoned building, I am drawn to them like moths are to a flame. I have been photographing abandoned places since 2014 when I was living in Singapore. I returned to Brisbane, Australia in 2016 where my love for these places continued to grow. In 2019 I landed my first publishing contract with Schiffer Publishing for my book 'Memories of Australia'. The book will be released late 2021 and will be available through all good book stores and online. Early 2020 I began work on my second book, this was picked up by Jonglez Publishing and will be titled 'Abandoned Taiwan' the release date is yet to be confirmed, though there have been hints of early 2022.

When I am not photographing abandoned places my focus is shifted to architecture, cityscapes and landscapes. I am also a full-time photographer for Freedom Property in Brisbane, Australia where I do real estate photography. 


As much as I enjoy travelling and taking photo's on my own, I am always keen to meet up with new photographers both locally and when travelling abroad, drop me a line via the contact form below or find me on instagram at @mattamation or @heymattamation to collaborate. There is a saying that goes... talents and inspirations are everywhere.
