Matthew Kadiis a photographer, videographer, designer, avid drummer and one of the pillar figures in the present-day Californian punk scene. Introduced to punk & abstract art in junior high by his teacher, mentor and friend Wendy Brasher, Matthew & friends quickly started the now seminal punk/hardcore band Monster Squad in 1997. Later projects include Great Apes, Build Us Airplanes and Holehog.
In 1998, his Great-grandmother handed down her AE-1. This moment, along with mentor Tom Ray, sparked a lifelong interest in photography. His passion is for capturing honest, spontaneous, intrinsic portraits of punks & people, alongside electrifying moments in various social events & the fun struggles of punk shows.
