CREATING ART IS A PROCESS OF SUCCESS AND FAILURE. A CONSTANT QUEST FOR ORIGINALITY AND BEAUTY AND PERFECTION. A VISUALIZATION OF A VISION THAT NEEDS TO BE POLISHED AND SCULPTED UNTIL IT IS JUST RIGHT. NOT EVERYONE IF CAPABLE OF DOING SO. TO FIND THE COURAGE TO REINVENT THE MEDIUM AND ONE SELF. MATSON JONES CAN.
Carter Wilson is a seasoned model. Signed by Crew Models International, he has had the opportunity to work with many renowned photographers and even graced one of the BeautifulMag covers from 2014, shot by no one less than Justin Monroe. That fact alone already indicates Carter is the kind of man who isn't afraid to take things a bit further. To experiment and explore new boundaries. Besides his personality and his great physique, it is that characteristic that makes him an exceptional male model.
We have come to know Matson Jones as a photographer who, by living in Hollywood, is surrounded by beautify and wanna-be celebrities, but who choses to work with the unknown faces and talents. However, for Carter Wilson he was happy to make an exception. And that was a lucky thing, knowing that Matson, like Carter, likes to experiment.
Experimenting defines art. There wouldn't be any great piece of art if artists would always follow the rules and not try new things or do things in new ways. Matson Jones is such an artists, which results in a portfolio of work that is various, refreshing and exciting. Working with Carter, Matson really wanted to go beyond his now familiar look while still featuring his stellar physique. He did it by experimenting with his studio lights and various color filters. The result is extra ordinary. Where one would day the photos look overexposed, we think the lighting is just perfect to make Carter stand out in a most unusual way. This is the kind of work that deserves the title art and can only be created by those who are daring to go the extra mile. –BM-
