Hello, I cane across your links looking at someone else's pictures. I am most definately looking forward to going home and find my PBASE account info so I can see your Iwo Jima pics. I was there on March 12th, 2005. I might be contacting you in the near future if I can't get in, I'm very curious to see your pics..

Kevin Carter's photo. im reminded of Sapir-Wharf hypothesis. We have no right to do anything but we're allowed to try and understand. It really is "African language" that's been captured. Issues like female mutilation or is it circumcision? We're getting wiser to the world and more attuned. One day we'll all have to work together and move towards the same goal. I look forward to that.

There are things that once you see or experience ... they can never be undone. I think that photo is a good example. Thanks for writing about that in such a personal way.
Guest 27-Aug-2005 20:22
I saw that your favorite photograph, at one time, was Kevin Carter's baby girl and vulture. I saw that for the first time 2 days ago and cannot get it out of my mind (my heart). I don't know why I'm writing to you other than to tell someone that it hurts so bad, someone who might understand. I'm going about my business but tears just keep rolling down my face; talking to my dog or cat, doing the dishes, cleaning up the mess at my computer desk, it doesn't matter. Something about her posture and the patience of that bird, he's going to wait, you know he is. No photograph has ever burned itself onto my brain like this one and I am hoping that as time passes I can become not desensitized but appreciative. I don't know what will happen but I suspect that there is no going back to before I saw it. I think that if I learn what I can about her and Kevin I will have a larger context in which to live with this image. It is OK that I am changed, I accept the change, I just want to be able to go on with an ordinary life; I want to go grocery shopping and get my truck serviced and buy a friend a birthday present with attention, I want these things to occupy me. I guess I am afraid, yes, I know I am but of just what I don't know. All of a sudden I am lost - in my own body, in my own mind, it's like it is so dark that the familiar are not familiar anymore, my reflection in the mirror is of a stranger, what is her problem? Enough I guess, thank you for being here, I needed you very much, still do but I think I can close and proceed. I'm trying anyway. Bye, Suzy

Hello Mr. Hevezi,
I just wanted to say that the pictures from Iraq are heartwrenching.
My brother who is a Marine with the VMFA(AW)533 will be going to Iraq
early next year.

Take care and God Bless all the Marines and Troops who are fighting for
my freedom.

I like very much the action depicted in your pictures. They are almost never stationary and always saying a story!

You have a great website!! Keep it up. We must not forget our men and women that gave their all. To some they are just Iraq war casualties but to many of us they are Iraq War Heroes. Don't Let The Memory Of Them Drift Away

wow, I love the pics in your page. I have a lot of heart, pride, dedication and motivation for the corp and the few I trust within it. My friends are my heart, and most of the ones who are like family to me are in the corp, better than many as people and as friends. Thank you for what you do. - Mary

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the comment you left in one of my galleries. It's nice to read a comment like that from a fellow photo journalist. Especially one that is such a good visual journalist as you are! I loved the series you made on Fuji.

Best regards,
Paul Teixeira

You have a great set of photos. I was very impressed with them. I initially came here because I was looking for Okinawa pictures...I am not usually distracted to sidetrack to look at other photos than my objective. You are doing a great job, please keep up the great work! Do you have more pics of Okinawa? : )
M.J. Hevezi18-Oct-2003 18:09
Thanks, Dee, very much for the comment. I had a student named Matt who was a younger Marine at Camp Hansen. I was in Okinawa for three years and knew many Okinawan and Japanese photographers, but not too many Americans who worked off base.
Dee 18-Oct-2003 07:54
Hi, Matt;

I have a friend who has a friend named Matt who is (was?) a photographer here on Okinawa, and I wanted to see if he has anything online. I don't know if you are one and the same, but I absolutely enjoyed your work. You must love your job.

Take care,
Dee :-)
Guest 22-Sep-2003 09:50
love your photos, especially the ones from micronesia, formerly from there, missed the islands sometimes.
M.J. Hevezi16-Sep-2003 10:33
Hi Matt,

I'm a PBase user also. When I went to pbase, it came up with YOU logged in yet. A bad guy would wipe out everything you have. I'm a good guy and will just log you out. Please log out next time you leave a public PC! =)
Nice Guy.
Donna Nelson 15-Sep-2003 22:02
I loved your photos. Being away from home and being able to view photos that i so much miss helps a whole lot. I'm currently in Iraq on deployment. I cannot wait to come home, all of us are ready to go home. We all need to be thankful for the freedom that alot of us take advantage of. I personally don't know how these people live, but this is all they know, this is how they've been brought up.
Alright i gotta go. Continue to do good things for the island.
I can't wait to come back to yap for a visit and to especially visit my family.

Excellent work, Matt. Your dedication to your craft and personal ingegrity come through in every photo.
Don Northup08-Aug-2003 16:50
Sweet galleries and I did enjoy the Jungle Grunts. I spent some time in Sasebo when I was in the USN back in the mid 80's. You have some great captures and I am sure your future projects will be successful.
