Vivek is a lovely person to work with. My first thoughts of working with Vivek would be his dedication and commitment to a project. He is easy to work with, and at the same time stays focussed on the job. My work experience with him has been mostly real estate / architecture / interiors. he is extremely good at that. And Vivek is the sort who you could let handle a project on his own. He comes back to you with the perfect solutions. This is a big advantage for medium sized firms like us, who need someone trustable to work with and at the same time take ownership for what they do. Wishing Vivek all the very best in his future endeavours and looking forward to our next assignment.

I have known Vivek since he was a young school boy and his metamorphosis to an accomplished photographer has been remarkable. His compositions capture the sensitivity of the moment and the drama of the scene. A wonderful amalgam of feelings and photographic excellence.

We had engaged Vivek to take images of our manufacturing plant and our products, which were to be used in our brochure. We were very happy with his professional approach to the assignment. He managed to take images that highlighted the product and the manufacturing process in the rough and inhospitable environment of the steel plant. Would definitely work with him when the need arises.

Perhaps the most striking features of Vivek’s works are his depth of insight and keen eye for compostion.I particularly like his ability to capture the experience vis-à-vis capturing the image...He is a gifted photographer.

Vivek was extremely thorough in his approach and candid in stating what was possible and what wasn't, in the interest of getting the best possible output for the client. He's the kind of photographer you need to trust and give space, for him to then express the clients brief through the lens.

Look forward to our next project Vivek!

I happened to come across Vivek's work long before I actually met him. This photograph was one that spoke to me. It was so captivating and unusual that it stayed in my mind for many months after I chanced to see it at someones home. When I visited Vivek's website subsequently, I confirmed that he was gifted with unusual skills and could see what any other photographer could not see even through the most sophisticated camera. There seemed to be an extra dimension to Vivek's work and when I was asked to compile and coordinate the production of a centenary coffee table book for my old school in the Nilgiris - Vivek was my obvious choice.

...And so we embarked on the project together. My experience has been that Vivek is extremely focused about his work as a photographer and is extremely time bound and has great respect for deadlines. He turns in work that is deeply satisfying. Vivek uses top of the line equipment and has trained at a premier institute, but equipment, or for that matter training can never replace 'the third eye' of this gifted photographer. His exceptional talent makes it possible for him to capture subjects the way they are and often from unconventional angles, without having to rely on the range of artificial manipulations possible with modern computer technology. Vivek makes what is mundane, extraordinary.

I wish him all the very best in all his future endeavours and I hope that many clients out there will reap rich benefits of his 'focus', the way I did.

Visiting faculty at Light & Life Academy during 2003 - 2004

I came to know Mr. Mathew a few years back when he was a student who had a keen interest in photography. As the years have passed this "interest" has grown into a passion and indeed a way of life. Mr. Mathew has a keen and discerning eye that sees the beauty in this world and what mankind has created on it. The images he has included in this site clearly reflect this. His work not only results from his dedication to a medium he has come to love, but also his knowledge of the power, possibilities and potential of the still image. It's this knowledge combined with his camera skills and enormous appetite for creating images that make us all appreciate life itself and appreciate Mr. Mathew for the fine artist that he is.

Peter Hendricks
Chief Strategy Officer
Saatchi & Saatchi Focus Network

Vivek is an artist with a camera. He doesn't click photos, he sees images: stories is symmetry, sensuality is shape, inspiration in juxtapositions, double-takes in reflections, profundity is blank space, plots in shadows. He is a poet and songwriter. And he uses his camera to make his work sing.

Over the years Vivek Mathew has been able to hone his skills on-the-job and his evolution as a photographer is evident when you examine the last few years of his work. But through the hard work and increase in technical abilities, industry professionals cannot but notice that he has the "eye", which is an important ingredient in the creative mix. Mathew is clearly one of the emerging talents to watch out for. I would not miss his next exhibition.

Vivek Mathew is sensitive to shifts in urban narratives, to sunlight and shadows, to human beings and spaces, to silence and noise and everything that makes up everyday living.

And even as he captures the mundane, somehow it becomes extraordinary in his hands. It becomes a record of what is important even though fleeting. What we forget to notice in our hurry to get from one place to another.

He is an exceptional photographer not just because of technique but because he sees what we cannot.
