Retro Narrative Fiction Photos of American Culture

Always with an eye for a good story, UK-based photographer Matt Henry creates narrative fiction photographs that center around 1960’s/1970’s American culture. The images have a historical slant to them as well, as Henry explores what an abandoned suburban home might have looked like after a family sought shelter during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Henry makes it clear that his work isn’t about sadness or grievance, however, as is the case with his King series. He delves into the real-life tale of one of America’s biggest music sensations, Elvis. “The story is as much about the death of Elvis as its impact on an Elvis fan. I’m also interested in how the representation of something in whatever form (jigsaw, newspaper story, etc.) can somehow carry the power of the original, or even come to enhance that power.” See how Henry has kept the King alive — and learned to stop worrying and love the bomb — in his retro narrative series past the break.
