Matt Eich: Sin & Salvation in Baptist Town
With his long-term project ‘Sin & Salvation in Baptist Town’ Matt Eich documented life in Baptist Town, one of Greenwood, Mississippi’s oldest African American neighbourhoods, where the legacies of racism continue to impact the people economically and culturally. ‘Sin & Salvation’ is the culmination of seven years of photographic work and engagement with the residents of the Baptist Town neighbourhood. Consisting of both documentary portraiture and landscape, Eich brings the long, twisted, and complicated history of Baptist Town into a contemporary context. ‘Sin & Salvation’ is the second volume of Eich’s four-part photo series ‘Invisible Yoke’.
