Norfolk, VA - Lorrie Saunders ArtGallery is pleased to present photographer Matt Eich's award winning project, CARRY ME OHIO opening July 21 and showing through August 31, 2012. CARRY ME OHIO is a profoundly moving document of the daily lives of the people of Southeastern Ohio. Once known for its abundance of coal, salt, clay and timber, the region was stripped of its resources by the mining corporations that flourished there. With resources depleted, corporations withdrew, leaving communities with little economic opportunity and a multitude of social ills. CARRY ME OHIO is the first chapter in Matt Eich’s ongoing series ‘The Invisible Yoke,’ which explores historical legacies in communities that are microcosms of the American experience.” Images from CARRY ME OHIO are held in the permanent collections of The Portland Art Museum and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. In addition to CARRY ME OHIO, Eich will display images and video from Part II of his project, LOVE IN THE FIRST PERSON, a visual essay documenting some of the moments and emotions experienced as the photographer and his wife transition from college to marriage and parenthood. Gallery hours are, Wednesday - Friday, 1 - 5:30 pm, Saturday, 1 - 4:30 pm or by appointment. For more information, please call 757-627-9808 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
