Matt Sav is a photographer, graphic designer, co-founder of Perth based design and direction studio HAND and drummer for Tame Impala.
He is twenty-six. According to Matt, he’s working on his first solo music project under the name Abalonely. When he’s not doing that, he’s playing indoor cricket, indoor soccer or squash, or swimming at the beach or in the pool. ‘I ride and walk through the park a lot too,’ says Matt, ‘and I eat healthily and I don’t smoke anymore.’ Matt eats a good deal of avocado, but he also enjoys salmon, vegies, ham and salad sandwiches, and a couple of cups of coffee each day. He also drinks a few beers or wines most days to relax after he finishes work and exercising. ‘I spend a lot of time hugging and kissing my woman friend, Sally, too,’ he says. Doesn’t he sound nice? Because Matt is so nice, we asked him to take some photos of the everyday things in his life so that you might look at them and go, ‘Huh. So that’s what Matt Sav’s world looks like. Nice.’
