This photograph is from Matthew Porter's series Pale Subtropical Light, a critical photographic inquiry into the disconnect between history and experience, especially in the context of Hollywood and its impact on California. Subjects in the series range from the life and career of Jane Fonda, mid-century modern architecture in California, and historical landscapes.

This work is inspired by a photograph by Julius Schulman who captured Ayn Rand in 1947 in her Richard Neutra designed house in Los Angeles. Here, Porter has scanned and cropped the original photograph, overlaid it with grass and plants from the Little Bighorn Battlefield, and re-photographed it, creating a collage of varying subject matter.

Matthew Porter's muscle cars soaring down San Francisco streets embody the definition of 1970s macho, while his images of the great Hindenburg floating over the American West depict the convergence of two time periods in world history. As a photographer Porter works with grandiose subject matter, creating fantastical scenes that look like they might be from an action movie or a strange dream. Porter is also known for his portraits, landscapes, and assorted photographs of beehives.

Porter hails from Pennsylvania and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, traveling the country to find the next backdrop for his work. He studied at Bard College and then continued at ICP-Bard for his MFA in Advanced Photographic Studies. His photographs have been included in New York Magazine, Modern Painters, and Exit.Read Less
