Matt Henry, London

Matt Henry photography Elvis

Matt Henry is a UK-based photographer who shoots little stories about 60s/70s America – a project that can be attributed to three decades of U.S. film and television addiction. Although his love of storytelling led him first into fashion photography, he quickly became tired of having to tell stories about beautiful women in beautiful clothes. Fueled by the notion that another photographic genre of narrative fiction had yet to be embraced, he set about creating his somewhat darkened vision of classic, rural America. Matt lives in Brighton with his Rhodesian Ridgeback dog Sam and works commercially out of Paris and London.

Ben Sklar is based in Austin, Texas and photographs for publications such as The New York Times, National Geographic Magazine, Newsweek, The London Sunday Times and Time Magazine. This work is from the ongoing project, ‘Serenity’, in which he writes, ‘In the early spring of 2008 Aimee and her husband Jeff decided they were fed up.  They wanted to free themselves from the constraints of the mundane, routine everyday lifestyle in urban America that so many have become conditioned to call normal. The American Dream so many strive for had left them jaded and full of discontent. They donated everything they owned: a 50-inch TV, boxes of childrens’ toys, and even gave away their wedding rings to a couple they found on Craigslist.

Chernobyl: Work by Antonin Kratochvil, Maciek Nabrdalik & Donald Weber

Donald Webber photography

VII photographers Antonin Kratochvil, Donald Weber and Maciek Nabrdalik have been working independently in and around the Forbidden Zone of Chernobyl, traveling into the abandoned City of Pripyat as well as its eerily overgrown green countryside. Together they have amassed one of the definitive records of the Chernobyl disaster, creating a collection of photos documenting the secret evolution of the post-atomic disaster area, pictures that reveal a haunted world. A modern city once filled with atomic engineers and nuclear physicists was lost forever to calculus error and a culture of obsolescence. Disaster happens to highly advanced societies, but what happens after the steel fences go up?

David Welch, Savannah Georgia

David Welch is a fine art photographer based in Savannah, GA and Martha’s Vineyard, MA. He is currently a MFA candidate in photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Of this series, Material World, he writes, ‘My work is a response to this contemporary consumer milieu. By treating artifacts of consumer culture as readymades, I create assemblages to form pseudo monuments, or totems, that serve as precarious externalizations of culture as social biography. The totems speak of accumulation and materiality and encourage debate about consumption, media, class, gender and the ways in which we feel compelled to consume’.
