Come out to The DL on February 28th to see my work on their multiple big flat-screens, on rotation all night! The DL is an awesome tropical-themed party spot, with a great mix of cozy corners and open dance space. You can come catch the happy hour drink specials until 8PM, and then stay late for mingling and dancing on their top floor, which also has an outdoor space to get some fresh air. You can also grab food until 9PM if you’re in the mood for a bite!
I will have some bottle-service fun for my close guests too.
There will also be some super fun pictures taken!
By saying you’re there for my event, you’ll get free entry at the door, rather than having to pay an entrance fee. All are welcome, so feel free to spread the word and invite your friends!
Looking forward to seeing you all there, and celebrating my art!
When: Friday, February 28th, 6:30PM - late
Where: The DL (95 Delancey, corner of Delancey and Ludlow), NYC
Who: Matt Monath Photography! www.MattMonath.com. This will show a combination of celebrity portraiture, fashion, and beauty photography.

Esquire’s “The Life of Man: A Portrait of the American Man Now” exhibition at the Hearst Tower is something to be checked out. This is only a small preview of the immersive images on display as a celebration of Esquire at 80.

My work has been featured in the photo book, “Art Takes Times Square”, which is a perfect bonus after the image appeared on a Times Square billboard. And it’s an archived image of mine! #mattmonath #mattmonathphoto #mattmonathphotography #arttakestimessquare #timessquarebillboard
Featured in The Advocate & Out Traveler
The Advocate Magazine & Out Traveler Magazine published my story, full of summery beach photos to cure our wintery blues. The 14-image story, titled “Prescription for a Polar Vortex” features my sexy shots of models in the sand. While mostly consisting of male models, there are also some recognizable faces, female models, and LGBT advocates. The story features Alvaro Francisco, Tarion Taylor-Anderson, Alec Bell, Justin Clynes, Patrick Ortiz, Paul McGill, Corey Mach, Jonathan D. Lovitz, Kevin Wiltz, Wade Schaming, Isis King, and Laura Kirkpatrick.
The images were all taken at Riis Beach. Growing up in Rockaway Beach, it was a treat to venture down to the beach to shoot these. The beach is a really special place to me, especially since Hurricane Sandy hit and transformed the coastline.
Here are all of the final shots!
Enjoy these behind-the-scenes shots too:
Thanks so much to Matthew James Ortiz, Randy Bince, Allie Pitilli, and Randy Moses for the behind-the-scenes shots.
Street-Style Story for Front Desk New York Magazine, Jan-Feb 2014
I took to the streets with Nicole Cherie Jones in Soho for the Jan-Feb 2014 issue of Modern Luxury’s Front Desk New York Magazine. We scouted out the trendiest and chicest New Yorkers we could find on the gray rainy day, asking them about their winter fashion. We talked to people all across the spectrum, whether in the fashion industry (model, textile designer, fashion designer, fashion consultant) or not (hedge fund VP, software developer, student, corporate strategist).
It was a great adventure through Soho, despite the raininess. We made it work! Check out the digital edition of Front Desk New York Magazine, Jan-Feb 2014. The spread is on pages 22-23.
Thanks to Jeff Fried and Manhattan Magazine for this photo! At their Herradura event, where they made delicious Herradura cocktails, we got to check out barrels turned into awesome creative masterpieces. Fun night, filled with skull face paint too! In lieu of their issue featuring Hugh Jackman. Seen here with Tara Healey and Matthew James Ortiz.
See the image, as well as other “scene” shots, in the digital edition of their latest issue!
