Something of a late bloomer in the photography world, 38-year-old Matthias Hombauer only began to get interested in shooting about a decade ago, while he was doing a PhD thesis in molecular biology. And, though biology and photography may seem polar opposites, it’s clear Matthias has applied some sort of mathematical precision to capture these huge artists at just the right time.
Having shot The Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Metallica, TV On The Radio, and more, Matthias’ portfolio speaks for itself, though it as an opportunity with the recently deceased frontman of The Prodigy that sticks out as a sore spot in his career. “When I was shooting The Prodigy the first time in a photo pit, Keith Flint knelt down in front of me to take some photos. Unfortunately, my memory card was so slow that I just got one shot of this special moment,” he says.
