I like to think I appreciate the static. I am relieved when I can come back to something and it hasn’t changed.
As trendy, hip and progressive I find my interests, I always come back to trying to achieve the timeless; whether it’s something I photograph, design, or even write.
I went back through some photos and attempted to age them. Yes, it is pretty and current to make photos look vintage. However, it’s fun to look at these and know that they were taken with a digital camera.
Signposts of Culture on an Unconventional Road with @mattslaby
To see more from photojournalist Matt Slaby’s test kitchen of photographic experiments, follow @mattslaby on Instagram.
Matt Slaby (@mattslaby) is a 6-foot-7 colorblind photographer based in Denver who was once told by Salman Rushdie that he was “too tall.” His Instagram photos are populated by spacemen, abandoned nuclear missile silos, and fictional stories written for found snapshots.
"The signposts of culture are really set by the outliers and the weirdos," Matt says. He describes Instagram as his "test kitchen" for experimenting, feedback, and a way for understanding “how subjects view their own world and what items they are tuned into."
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Matt traveled an “unconventional road into the creative world,” working his way through university and law school as a wilderness firefighter and an metropolitan EMT before taking on photography full time—just a month after passing his law exams.
"I love how things take on apparent order when you view them from a macro or micro perspective," he says. "It’s the middle distance that’s confusing, chaotic and kinda absurd."

For my first blog post, I’m sharing some images I took of Emily a few weeks ago. I really just wanted to have fun with this shoot, and I definitely achieved that! It was the hottest shoot I’ve done to date, but it was worth it. I loved getting out there and making images after a bit of a break.
Emily was so much fun to work with, and I know we’ll be collaborating more in the future!
Memorial Weekend Camping Trip • The Buffalo River, AR
We went camping over Memorial Weekend with four of our close friends. We woke up at 5:00AM, packed the car, and drove the six hours to the Buffalo River in Ponca, Arkansas. After learning that every campground had reached maximum capacity, we loaded up our backpacks with essentials and headed through the forest to find our own spot. We landed ourselves the most beautiful spot on the entire river. It was gorgeous and directly across from our tent was the perfect cliff jumping rock! We spent the weekend tubing, checking for ticks every 5 minutes, hiking, playing Cards Against Humanity, exploring caves, and cooking some delicious campfire dinners. All in all, it was an incredible trip. Can’t wait to go back.
