Art Obsession: Matthias Heiderich
Matthias Heiderich is a self-taught photographer living in Berlin. I think his work is fantastic and he is pretty much one of my all-time favorite photographers now. His eye for composition and color is incredible. He makes things that we may otherwise think mundane, or even ugly, turn into something beautiful and calming. I often think if I were a painter, my paintings would resemble his work. I found it difficult to select only a sampling of photogrpahs to show here, and not just show his entire portfolio, but I've done my best!

About Us

Christopher Scott and Jodi Vautrin are the husband and wife team behind Ourhaus, where they chronicle their adventures in home improvement, decorating and travel. After purchasing a unique loft space just a few miles north of Boston, they began photographing and writing about their projects and it blossomed into a creative outlet and platform.

When they’re not home improving, Jodi spends her days as a freelance creative director & designer with a focus on user interface and interactive design, and is an entrepreneur at heart. She serves on the board of AIGA Boston as Vice President of Emerging Ideas & Events.

In his professional life, Christopher is the Technology Director for a multi-service ad agency based in Harvard Square. In his private life, he enjoys tinkering in all its forms, whether it's rebuilding the Ourhaus home network (again), fooling himself into thinking he knows how to fix home appliances, or trying to unravel the mysteries of the guitar. He also flies planes, performs open heart surgery and sings at bar mitzvahs (though not all at the same time).

They share their “haus” with their adorable, highly food-motivated chocolate lab, Lucy.
