‘Office Wife’ 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.
‘Office Wife’ depicts a snapshot of a 1960s living room, only the shagpile carpet visible, with a turquoise phone off the hook, cigarettes littered on the floor, and a raunchy copy of Office Wife open on an orange chair. Colour and composition reign in this print, which is not only arrestingly beautiful but conceptually provocative: a jewell of contemporary photography.
