Matlock was especially interesteed in documenting the people she encountered in her travels, on the street as well as in restaurants, shopping districts, and at home. Following from her interest in architecture, the arts, and literature, many images have as their subjects artists, writers, editors, and dancers, as well as architecture, modern artwork and traditional crafts.

The Russia and Other Regions series is significant for its often informal and intimate depictions of notable individuals associated with the Matlocks' activities as American ambassadors in Russia: these include Mikhail and Raisa Gorbachev, Ronald and Nancy Reagan, George H. W. and Barbara Bush, Eduard Sheverdnadze, along with several secretaries of state, career politicians, military officials, and religious leaders. Other subjects include artists, editors, writers, and scientists, with one small series devoted entirely to dissident and scientist Andrei Sakharov.

Other notable foreign leaders appear in the Middle East series group entitled "Middle East Leaders," while they attended various meetings and conferences at which the Matlocks were present.

The color prints fall into two size groups: 11x14 and 8x10 inches, with some variability. Almost all the larger prints are housed in thin white window mats and are typically inkjet or laser printed, some at a later date than when they were originally taken.

Most of the prints in the collection were exhibited in the U.S. and abroad; thus, there is a small amount of print materials in the Papers Series related to exhibits and lectures, such as caption cards, title panels, and fliers as well as a Russian magazine, OGONET (1989), with an article about her photography, in Russian.
