Matthew Scherfenberg is an American photographer. "Most of my work focuses on the human body, the form I think is most beautiful to human eyes. Often I attempt to distill out all the sexuality, identity and emotion and present only the aesthetic element. This is not meant to be sterile. I want to provoke. I want to stimulate. I want whatever the observer feels to come from inside themselves. I make art for the sake of art. I do some commercial work, but mostly art for gallery shows".
