During the 1960s by Matt Henry

“My personal practice focuses on America during the 1960s and 1970s. The works take the form of staged scenes constructed as set-builds in the UK using props sourced from here and the United States. I was drawn to this period in American history during my undergraduate studies in BA (Hons) Politics and again in my MA Photography. Its devout modernism is a particular interest, with utopian political and cultural ideals heralding some of the great liberal successes of our time (the civil rights, feminist, anti-war and free speech movements). My current long-term project focuses on the American counterculture and social protest in the years 1964-74.”Matt Henry
