A new website for Matt Inden Photography

"The Ridge" photograph by Matt Inden

“The Ridge”

We’re excited to announce the enhanced experience of the new Matt Inden Website.

Matt’s photography is worth seeing in person. In particular, his large prints bring a clarity and realism that I’ve not seen from any other fine art photographer out there.

The temptation among many photographers, professional and amateur alike, is to take an otherwise satisfactory image and pump it full of saturation and vibrance. These ‘high-saturation’ photos have a beauty all their own. They are often full of otherworldly hues, purples and pinks, reds and oranges that create a fantastical vision of the natural world.

Their point-to-point relation to the actual landscape, however, is somewhat dubious.

The first time I stood in front of a large-format print from Inden, I was fully transported. Throughout my youth I hiked along the ridges and valleys atop Vail Pass. I always wondered at the view, on a clear day, from those promontories. I remember wildflowers thick as carpet along the grass, and the peaks of the elk mountains in the backdrop.

I no longer live in Vail, but I miss it every day. Seeing Matt’s image “The Ridge” transported me immediately home. I felt as though I could step through his photograph right back into the world of natural beauty where I was raised. Even now, when I look at his imagery on the walls of my Denver home, I sometimes swear that I can see the wildflowers waving in the breeze, or the snow curling off the mountain tops.

This is what I mean by clarity and realism. Matt resists the temptation to oversaturate his images. The reward, for all of us who enjoy his work, is that he captures our natural world – and its inhabitants – in the way that they truly are, even as they stun us with their beauty.

So, can we capture all of that in a website?

Of course not … but perhaps we can present his images in such a way that you are intrigued, and will take the time to see more of Matt’s work in person, learn about his methods and philosophies that can frame the wilderness, preserve its spirit for our own memories, and remind us every day how precious these wild places are to us.

Thanks for supporting Matt and his work, and we hope to see you in the gallery soon,

Tom Boyd

  3. Hi Matt,
    We have been in your store a few times — we would like to get pricing for your photo “The Ridge,” with flowery Shrine Pass in the foreground and Mt. of the Holy Cross in the background. Could you please give us pricing for 50″ horizontal metal and 45″ horizontal print with framing, like you did at the residences in Vail Village (forgot the name – the Willows?) . My phone # is 303.775.9418 if it’s easier to call . . . Thanks, Hillary
