Ash Bonez is a name I came up for myself back in 2019 while working on the earliest photos in my series Untitled Self-Portraits. Since then it has developed to more than just a name I identify with, but is also what I like to call the mighty connection my soul has with the universe. 

Ash Bonez (Matthew Grandy) is a photographer and visual artist who lives in the state of New York. He received his Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in photography at SUNY New Paltz and is pursuing a passion for photography, painting and drawing. His diverse body of work ranges from portraiture, abstraction, surrealism, and colorfield. Matthew believes there is a little bit of an artist in all of us and likes to work between the lines of the commercial and the conceptual.
