MATTE magazine is a photography journal I started in 2010 as a way to shed light on good new photography. Each issue is devoted to the work of one artist, _and the magazine is printed in full color with no ads and sold for the cost of production. MATTE is collected by the libraries of MoMA, ICP, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art . As photo editor of VICE, I'm excited to share my discoveries with a wider audience._ Issue 27 of MATTE features photos by Sam Clarke, a 21-year-old student at School of Visual Arts in New York, with an introduction by one of his favorite musicians, Alex G.
i saw jenny
i held her hand
she showed her teeth she looked me right in my beady eyes
she opened her wings to show me
i chewed the mud
