Those are medicine bottles in the window, and indeed there are ill family members. Through the window you see four children at play; two, twins, are deaf.

But the dog’s name is Hercules. 🐺

Matt’s project mines stories from the American experience, focusing on Ohio, Mississippi, Virginia, and a road trip around the country.

Born 1986, Matt Eich is an independent photographer living in Norfolk, Virginia who works on long-form projects about the American experience. As a kid he mowed enough lawns to buy his first camera, and after that worked at a Ritz Camera store, going on to study photojournalism at Ohio University from 2004 - 2008. Since those glory days, he’s made photographs for clients ranging from National Geographic to GQ, Esquire, and Apple around the United States, as well as Peru, Rwanda, Botswana, India, Mexico and the United Kingdom. Over the years he’s won numerous awards for his work including being named one of PDN’s 30 Emerging Photographers and being selected for the Joop Swart Masterclass, and Eich has placed prints in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, The Portland Art Museum, the New York Public Library, and elsewhere.

New York, NY—On July 15, Matt Eich’s photo exhibit, The Invisible Yoke, opens @TheHalfKing. Examining microcosms of the American experience, this project comprises four chapters: Ohio, Mississippi, Virginia, and a road-trip odyssey around America. As such, it is a mining of American regional society. The images refer to legacies of the nation’s past, but keep the individual front and center. And Matt is always alert to fantastical elements that lend poetry to mundane realities.

On opening night, Matt will discuss The Invisible Yoke over a slideshow screening of the project.

Half King curator Anna Van Lenten says, “In their framing, Matt’s pictures often embrace twin poles: past and present, bleak and gilded, domestic and wild, vulnerable and tough, private and public. He seeks all levels of American culture: high, low, marginal, conventional. Along with his great eye, this omnivorous curiosity is his talent, and it is how he brings American life back to us.”
