Matin Zad (b. 1987, Toronto) is a New York–based photographer who recently graduated from the School of Visual Arts (MFA). He seeks to create evocative, fully realized scenes through still imagery, with enough tension and translucence to still allow the viewer to fill in the blanks. For the LMC series he collaborated with design duo gg-ll, following their project, "This Way Up". Matin currently lives and works in New York City.
