Matt Sharkey Captures Beautifully Self-Aware Women

There is a quietness to Matt Sharkey's photos that makes people appreciate these rather risque images -- not for the nudity, but for the vulnerability that is a palpable presence in each photo. Yet, coupled with this vulnerable element is a self-awareness and an acceptance that is makes the entire spread incredibly beautiful and poignant as well.

A keeper of mementos, as he describes himself, Matt Sharkey truly knows how to capture the moment. From capturing the specific touch of natural light to the soft caress of some moving fabric, he transports his audience right into the meditative experience each image possesses.

I especially like the romantic quality in Matt Sharkey's portfolio. An eclectic photographer, his subtle and soft style provides a common theme between each and every one of his photos.
