About Matt Weber and His Work

The photos in Matt Weber’s “Industrial Monuments” series are of various industrial plants. Each image in the show was taken at night on film with a 4-inch by 5-inch view camera. The exhibit provides context to the progress of human ingenuity.

Artist Statement

Industrial plants are often located on the outskirts of our cities and communities, isolated from us while simultaneously manufacturing and producing the goods and materials we need to make our cities and communities thrive. My images are my way of exploring the duality of this phenomenon. The stark black and white tonality offers a sense of timelessness, while the long exposures offer some time to reflect alongside these monuments which, in one way or another, will shape our future.

Matt Weber holds a bachelor’s degree in photography from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and master’s degrees in both arts and fine arts from the University of Iowa in Iowa City.

In addition to working as an artist, he teaches art and photography courses at St. Charles Community College, Webster University and St. Louis Community College.
