Matt Storm is a photo-based artist, living in Washington, DC, and making primarily photographs, as well as installations and sculptures. Storm’s work engages with the theme of identity, and the question “who are we, and how do we know?” He approaches this question through self-portraiture, and visual topics including transgender and queer issues, family, and community.
Storm has had solo shows in Washington, DC and Hanover, New Hampshire, and has participated in group shows in Oregon, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York City, and New Jersey, including at LightBox Photographic in Astoria, Oregon.
Storm maintains active professional membership in Washington Project for the Arts (WPA), Society of Photographic Educators, and its LGBTQ Caucus, and Filter Photo.
Storm grew up in Princeton, NJ. He attended Dartmouth College, and majored in Studio Art, and received the Perspectives on Design Award, given to the top graduating studio art major(s). He also transitioned to living as a transgender man during this time, which figures heavily in his work. Storm has interned at the Marpha Foundation in Nepal, has worked as a full-time teaching assistant and special instructor for Dartmouth College’s art department, and has been an intern captain at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA. Storm has supported artist-educators like Christina Seely, Virginia Beahan, Brian Miller, Emmet Gowin, Joel Sternfeld, Joanne Dugan, Amy Arbus, and Jess Dugan with technical photo printing for their courses.
Storm’s "other life" includes deep involvement in the DC startup and entrepreneurship communities.
