Lens-based visual artist & photographer
born in 1990 in Baku, South Caucasus, currently operates between Tbilisi and Baku. Renowned as a conceptual photographer, specializing in monotypes – single edition physical photography prints, Mathers is best known for his participation in documentary projects, meticulously observing human activities and capturing symbolic moments through his lens. Reflecting profound insights derived from personal experiences, his conceptual photographs undergo a process involving diverse printing techniques, paper selection, and visual design, each stage enhancing the viewer's experiential journey. Within his oeuvre, Mathers presents a unique perspective on contemporary phenomena, inviting viewers to contemplate the essence of reality in an era saturated with images.

Central to his artistic vision is the interplay of memory, presence, and imagination within photography. Viewing photography as a medium to manifest a balance between these elements, he transforms images into tangible dimensions of insightful experience. Through large-scale prints, Mathers creates portals that transcend conventional notions of time, rendering the fourth dimension visible. His ongoing exploration of interconnection of light and imagination seeks to unravel the mysteries of human consciousness, propelling forward the metamodernist movement. Notable projects such as "NOVA III" exploring and documenting cosmic scale of imagination, dedicated to inspire for scientific inquiry in physics and astronomy. "Oilbow" translates the voice of the Caspian Sea expressing its condition to humanity that settled on its shores. In the "eye spectOcularity" series, Emin embarks on a journey of exploration of the profound communication inherent through human gaze, and uncovering new insights into our visual abilities.

Emin Mathers' contributions to the art world extend beyond individual projects, evidenced by his participation in notable exhibitions and acquisitions by various private national and international collections.
