‘Naked Pool Boy’ is an Archival Pigment Print by contemporary photographer Matt Henry. From a limited edition of 6, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Matt Henry is a Brighton-based photographer, whose work explores the power of fiction through the photographic medium. Inspired by the politics and culture of 1960s and 70s America, Henry’s work is driven by an attention to style and characterisation, each photograph beautifully designed, composed, and executed. His latest project, ‘Twin Palms’ explores the lives of glamorous, monied housewives in suburban, mid-century California.
Think Stepford Wives meets Thomas Pynchon: beautiful but destructive women, roaming listlessly around modernist villas, every image suffused with the eye-popping colours of a counter-cultural acid trip.
‘Naked Pool Boy’ depicts the pool cleaner of an expensive, suburban home, rippling the surface of the water with a pool skimmer and stripped completely of his clothes.
The implications are explicit: the restless housewife is nearby, ready to employ the pool boy for less professional services. With a keen sensitivity to colour and composition, Henry’s image is not only arrestingly beautiful but conceptually provocative: a jewell of contemporary photography.
