Lost America


Matthew Portch was born and raised in Bristol, England. Growing up he was influenced by American television. The series, “Lost America,” explores what Matthew describes as a sense of, “on-pause.” He explores the towns and rural suburbs of the United States. A feeling of absence runs through the imagery. He states, “My creative vision is to capture a calm and melancholic disposition in the landscape and create a scene of discernible simplicity to evoke an emotional and response from within.”
