An Award Winning Photographer From Montana
About Cynthia Matty
Cynthia Matty-Huber discovered her love of photography at an early age. As her art evolved, she was drawn to photographing people. She went on to earn a BA in photography/film from Montana State University. While completing her Degree, she entered Photolucida and won Top 50 with her images on an aging ranch in McLeod Montana.
Her focus on the story of an elderly cattle rancher, John Hoiland, opened her vision to the world of ranching and she was hooked. Wanting to capture this life that is fast disappearing, she focused her camera on the rugged existence of ranchers in the West. These are people who dig their life’s work out of land, 365 Days a year, at the mercy of the elements, she wondered what keeps them going. Cynthia’s passion is to make images that are a testament to these hardscrabble individuals who devote their life to the western landscape.
