Matt Albiani has shot campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Nautica, Hugo Boss, Victoria's Secret, J.Crew, Tommy Hilfiger, Cole Haan, Lilly Pulitzer, French Connection, and Vineyard Vines. Editorials include ELLE, MR.PORTER, GQ, MARIE CLAIRE, ESQUIRE, INTERVIEW, and VANITY FAIR, and he has photographed celebrities including Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway, Matt Dillon, and Vincent Cassel. He has shot the last two book covers for Sheryl Sandberg.
Albiani is New England born and bred, and takes those east coast sensibilities in his work with his photographs.
A fine example of this is in his first book of photographs, entitled LIFEGUARD ON DUTY, released by Antinous Press. Here, Albiani traveled for years across the U.S. photographing ocean guards in their own environment.
With an intense simplicity, a pure eye, and - as a former lifeguard himself - a soulful connection to these brave men, he has created a beautiful and unique tribute to the life of a guard.
Albiani is also co owner of the vintage shop MATE GALLERY in Montecito, CA and Amagansett, NY.
He lives in the West Village, NYC.
