Matthias Heiderich is a self-taught photographer currently living and working in Berlin. Since 2007 Matthias has worked on a variety of different photographic projects—Color Berlin, Studien, Spektrum, Systems/Layers, Material—many of which are based in Berlin. A minimalist, contemporary gesture is inscribed onto Heiderich’s photography, both formally and in its content. Urban and suburban spaces comprise his preferred terrain, especially industrial regions that, despite their close ties to society, are often devoid of people. This context might suggest that the images produced are grey and melancholic—quite the contrary, these images are recordings of color and contrast.
Heiderich has shown his work in a number of venues including Maag Hallen, Zurich, Beton Gold, Cologne, Qlick Editions, Amsterdam, Dear Photography, Hamburg, Gallery Victorlope, Barcelona, Multilayerladen, Berlin, Neonchocolate, Berlin, Spot, Galerie, Berlin, Hall des Chars, Strasbourg and the 2014 Oxford Photography Festival.
