Matt Henry is a Brighton-based photographer who explores the counterculture of America in the 1960s and 70s via beautifully-constructed ‘stills from movies that were never made.’
This piece is from Henry’s The Trip series, in which he tells the story of an ageing hippie, deep in the desert, brewing strong psychedelic liquids for the few far out customers that swing by. Here, the cast exit the motel, lost in their own world’s as they revel in the splendour of the desert sky.
The photographs in this series were captured at a film set in the Mojave Desert in California. The set is designed to look exactly like a 1960s diner, gas station and motel, right down to the smallest of details, that Henry expertly captures in frame.
From a limited edition of 6, this giclée print is signed by the artist.

About the artist
Matt Henry is a Brighton-based photographer who creates Mid-century inspired photography that explores the power of fiction.
Described as ‘stills from a movie that was never made’, Henry creates series' of photographs, exploring the photographic sequence as a storytelling medium in its own right. Each series features a cast of actors, and is created via the same steps as traditional film making - from storyboard and casting, to set design, period hair and make up, and directing.
Via his work, Henry draws on his fascination of the mid-century period, and features his recurring interests of the Sixties as an unresolved political flashpoint and the role of counterculture in social change.
Henry explains: 'Rather than viewing this period as a static historical artefact to be viewed from an objective present, my fictions explore past and present by using this era as a kind of shape-shifting historical mirror.'
