Matthieu Litt is a Belgium based photographer, mainly interested in the notion of distance, and how he can visually break and explore it, by blurring the boundaries and landmarks between an image taken in his close surroundings and another from far abroad.
Matthieu likes to explore and portray neighbouring spots as well as more remote areas, his last journey taking him around Central-Asia.
"Over there, there are so many horses that they don’t even have a name. This area of the Faristan, wild, unknown and so fantasied, is a mix between beauty and wildness landlocked between mountains. It’s a quest for the sublime, the distance, but also the imagery and beliefs that are related with it. It’s like making an awaken dream come true. It’s like catching the feelings of this terrestrial paradise, where the borders are as entangled as the mountain ranges that define them. It’s a state between awareness and imaginary, between the quest and the feeling of already knowing these spaces where the environment forges the people," says the photographer.
