Matt Henry

Posted by Fabio 18 December 2017

Matt Henry (b. 1978) grew up in North Wales and is now based in Brighton, England. His photography is inspired by the politics and culture of 1960s America and its relationship to the contemporary world. The works take the form of fictional scenes staged as set-builds and dressed locations in the UK and USA. Each project is storyboarded and typically features a cast of actors styled and directed by the artist. Henry claims his work ‘plays with fragments of American photography, cinema and literature to explore ideological concerns.’
