VOTE FOR NIXON! MATT HENRY

If you were born again and you could choose a different era, which one would it be?”. That tedious question that people with no social skills constantly use, anxiously waiting for an answer to analise to get hold of the conversation. I’ve always affirmed that my true place in History was being a Middle Ages Lord and take advantage of the marvellous (and unfortunately extinct) droit de seigneur. Nevertheless, my answer has changed since I came across Matt Henry’s work and his Nixon time deep USA sceneries. No doubt now, I should’ve been born in a little town in Iowa, attended country social meetings, taken part in some sort of Friends of the Rifle club, have a nice taxidermy display in my living room and defended Richard Nixon and his most blatant liberalism with my life. Live the life Matt Henry presents us in his pictures, recreating the 60s USA in sets and fake sceneries, with Elvis singing everywhere, watching university hippies demonstrate in the streets while I polish my boots and chew tobacco, rifle on my hand… That’s the life I should’ve lived, the republican American Dream and not the Spanish building crisis… Anyway, we will always have Henry’s work, Elvis’ discography and a Bourbon bottle to remember that era we never lived in.
