Matt Henry

Born in 1978 in North Wales, United-Kingdom

Chevy Unfer Moon, 2007

Matt Henry (b. 1978) grew up in North Wales and is now based in Brighton, England. His practice focuses on the politics and culture of America during the 1960s and 1970s; a subject Henry researched in his BA Politics (Univ. of Nottingham) and MA Photography (Univ. of Brighton). The works take the form of fictional scenes staged across set- builds and dressed locations in the UK and USA. > Read more

Henry’s work plays with fragments of American photography, cinema and literature to explore underlying ideological concerns. He has an interest in the counterculture and his first monograph, Short Stories, imagines the rise of progressive politics against a background of small town conservatism, as viewed through a utopian / dystopian lens. Matt Henry’s work has been exhibited in Europe, Asia and North America.
