Episode 15: Matt Eich

My guest this week in photographer Matt Eich.  We met up to talk about his work photographing the Southern United States and Appalachia, his time as a graduate student in the Hartford Art School’s International Limited-Residency Program and his life as a dad and family man.  Not to mention alligator hunters Rebel and Julius in Shell Island, Louisiana and welding families in Chauncey, Ohio.   We also discussed his new book Carry Me, Ohio which collects pictures made in rural Appalachian towns abandoned by industry.  Published by Strum and Drang, the book has sold out, but be on the look-out for a limited edition coming in 2017.
