Matias Sauter Morera was born in 1986 in San José, Costa Rica.
After finishing his studies in Photography and teaching at the Veritas University in San José in 2010, he assisted in a landscape photography project of the Musée du quai Branly in Argentina. His photographs have been shown in various galleries and festivals, especially in Latin America, like the Despacio Gallery, the GuatePhoto Festival in Guatemala and at the Veinti4/Siete Gallery in San José 2018. In Berlin, he has been working in commercial and editorial photography. Specialized in art-documentary essays, portraiture, and fashion, he has been commissioned by renowned brands and published in international magazines like Condé Nast Traveller, Vogue, Haaper's Bazar, Cosmopolitan, and Stern.
As a consequence of his lifestyle of constant moving and traveling, his work focuses on the exploration of different notions of identity and uses photography as a way to confront and create new realities. He currently divides his time between Berlin and Costa Rica, where he has been engaged in the photographic re-exploration of his childhood's natural context - the tropical nature.
