In an effort to highlight the many different genres of photography, Full Circle has put together a schedule of speakers, once a month, to present their work and to tell the stories behind them.
 
Oftentimes, the process of making an image is a mysterious aspect for the viewer. In order to highlight these processes, we have invited a variety of photographers from commercial wedding photographers, fine art photographers, and many more.
 
Our sixth speaker is Matt Storm on Wednesday, February 12th, 6-7PM.
 
Matt Storm is a photo-based artist, making photographs, performances, installations and sculptures in Washington, D.C. Storm’s work engages with the theme of identity, and the question “who are we, and how do we know?” He approaches this question through self-portraiture, and visual topics including transgender and queer issues, family, and community.
 
Storm shows in solo & group shows across the US, including at Sense Gallery, Filter Photo Space, and George Washington University, and has been featured in F-Stop Magazine and the Washington Post.
 
In 2019, as part of May is All About Trans, Storm also curated what may be the first extended-view group show of entirely artists who identify as transgender, non-binary, two spirit, agender, and genderfluid. This show was on view for six weeks in Washington, D.C.
 
Storm serves on the leadership team of the LGBTQ Caucus of the Society for Photographic Education. Storm is in the inaugural group of artists with studios at STABLE Arts in Washington, D.C.
 
Storm grew up in Princeton, NJ. He attended Dartmouth College, and majored in Studio Art, and received the Perspectives on Design Award. He also transitioned to living as a transgender masculine person during this time. Storm has worked at the Marpha Foundation in Nepal, Dartmouth College’s studio art department, and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA.
