Matthew Pillsbury (born November 25, 1973) is a French-born American photographer, living in New York City.

The Screen Lives series, inspired by Sugimoto's movie theater photos, features black and white, long-exposure photographs of family and friends sitting in their apartments interacting with their computer and television screens.

In 2004 The New York Times Magazine commissioned him to do a portfolio of photos of New York museums after hours. One such photo was taken at the Guggenheim Museum: An installation in progress in the Ronald O. Perelman Rotunda (Oct. 1, 2004.)

In addition to New York, he continued to shoot within museums in both London and Paris, including the Musée du Louvre. At the Lourve he photographed the Mona Lisa.
