Photographer Matthew Harris
Born in Trinidad, Matthew moved to South Wales when he was four years old. Living briefly in another country was the culprit of Matthew’s itchy feet; he knew from a very young age that he eventually would leave Wales and travel the world. At 18 years old, he moved to London to study astronomy at the University College London and went on to get a doctorate in Physics.
Realizing he probably wouldn’t make it to the moon, he settled on the US and is currently living in New York City. He works as an IT consultant and part-time astronomy researcher studying planets around other stars. He also dabbles in music, writing songs on his acoustic guitar. His love of travel has taken him to 30 countries on trips ranging from tours of southern France (enjoying the delights of country cuisine) to swimming in Antarctica (enjoying the many, many penguins).
