Matt Eich  Photographer of the American condition

In February I had the opportunity to collaborate with the writer @earl.swift, and made photographs to accompany his riveting 8,500 word essay, "The Sea Is Come Up" for @outsidemagazine. The story chronicles an intense storm in 2017 that caused The Henrietta C., a boat from the fishing village of Tangier Island, Virginia to sink in the Chesapeake Bay with father-son fishing team Ed and Jason Charnock aboard. Sadly, Ed drowned, but his son, Jason, was rescued by neighbors from the island who responded to their distress calls. An enormous thanks to Design Director @bananahfe and Photo Editor @madelinekelty for trusting me with this story, and for letting me use b&w film. Thanks to @patjarrett for the assist, and to @flattenimage for the great scans. As an aside, I grew up reading @earl.swift in the local newspaper as a kid, so being able to make pictures for this story was kind of a dream come true. #TangierIsland #Virginia #Assignment #Commission #HenriettaC, #RIPEdCharnock #TheSeaIsComeUp @outsidemagazine
