This is a story of an ongoing journey, visiting intimately an

underground world where the lines between the police and the

people they are protecting are blurred into one. Conducting a

ten-year investigation while embedded in the police force of Newark

NJ, Artist Matt Gunther gained access to a system where the means

of enforcement are as archaic as the very notion that simply enforcing

will solve the problems.

If you believe in karma, or are willing to entertain it as a metaphor,

you might think of the collective of humanity-and the human

microcosm of police officers, suspects, and victims so vividly shown

in Probable Cause-in the way that the Buddhist teacher Sharon

Salzberg describes it: "In this inconceivably immense reality, we have

all wandered forever... Through this timelessness we have all done

everything, every one of us: we have loved, hated, feared, killed,

raped, stolen, given, served, loved.... We are all one another's

parents, children, friends, lovers, and enemies, over and over again."

Matt Gunther, a native new Yorker, is

a film-maker and photographer who

has been documenting a sense of

place and moments of time

throughout his career. His portraits

endeavour to uncover and expose the

vulnerability and compassion - the

core of his subjects. Matt received his

Bachelor's in Fine Arts from SUNY

Purchase. Matt's work has been

featured in numerous international

and national publications, including

The New York Times Magazine,

Newsweek, London Sunday Times and

Gentlemen's Quarterly. His work has

been praised and written about in

American Photography, PDN, and

Communication Arts, among others.

Matt's work is in the permanent

collection of the Brooklyn Museum

and The Palais De Toyko in Paris.

Magical Thinking is a not-for-profit publishing and educational

initiative founded by Joshua Lutz and Tara Cronin in 2010. Its

commitment to furthering our understanding of the importance of how

images function revolves around a programme of books, exhibitions

and educational workshops.
