born in north carolina to military parents, photographer matt vanhook was barely six weeks old when he and his parents boarded a plane bound for honolulu, hawaii. his interest in nature was evident from the very beginning, spending hours on the beach chasing the waves, searching for shells, catching hermit crabs, and climbing plumeria trees before he was out of diapers. mr. vanhook’s interest in photography began at the age of 10 while living in landstuhl, germany. a small 110 kodak camera accompanied him on all his school field trips. even then the passing landscape caught his eye as he rode the train to nearby cities. four years in europe refined his eye for the unique- st. mark’s cathedral and canals of venice, the louvre and pompideu museums of paris, along with the eiffel tower. the many castles of austria and germany, the sheer magnificence of the alps, and the earthy splendor of europe’s vineyards and rivers. mr. vanhook has seen the work of the masters and applies that to his photography, his motto is, "preseving life, through imagery."
