Matt Cauthron is a photographer, creative, and educator living in the Coachella Valley of California. Over the years, his work has included film and digital photography, mixed media assemblage, graphic design, and video. His current creative passions fall in photographing the DesertFunky. At the same time, he continues the visual ideas of those images into assemblages that experiment with the use of rustic materials and textures. Many of his pieces rely on found woods and metals, as well as artifacts used in education and photography.
Matt is also an Apple Distinguished Educator, Adobe Education Leader, and co-founder of the Digital Arts Technology Academy. He has worked with Apple, Adobe, The California Department of Education and The California Arts Project to assist other arts educators, develop model practices, and develop the current California Arts Standards for Media Arts.
