One of George Mattei’s favorite ways to shoot is interpreting conceptual ideas. He finds it the most fun and the most stimulating part of his photography. In his own words, George describes some of his favorite images.
GM: The Organ Donation concept was influenced by a friend from my fishing club who donated a kidney to another fellow fisherman.
GM: The Frozen Time was a suggestion by my stock agency editor. The concept of time is fascinating to me and so the 2nd Time photo was created.
GM: My wife is a mental health professional. I am exposed to the topic on a regular basis, and so paranoid schizophrenia was created. It is inspired by the work of photographer Gerald Bybee.
GM: The last photo illustrates the influence of the United States in the world.
