Matthew Clark (b. 1983) is an American photographer born and raised in New York specializing in water photography. Clarkís photography explores his relationship with the ocean through intimate portraits of breaking surf with the intention of capturing something private,  personal, and unique about each wave. Constantly at play in his photographs are the delicate, yet powerful, elements of moving water and reflections of light off surfaces of churning surf. The ability to capture these moments comes from his expertise in water from a lifetime of surfing. As days get shorter and the temperatures in New York drop to below freezing, Clark can be found in the surf donning his heavy neoprene wetsuit as the snow falls across the empty beaches of New York, capturing the silent beauty of these breaking waves.
