Matt Eich was born in Richmond, Virginia in 1986 and is the oldest of four children. He grew up in the peanut-farming town of Suffolk, Virginia. Watching his grandmother’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease was a formative experience and a road trip with his grandfather cemented his early relationship with photography. Eich began working as a freelance photographer while studying photojournalism at Ohio University for clients that have come to include GQ, Esquire, Mother Jones, TIME, FADER, Harper’s, Apple, National Geographic and others. He has been named one of PDN’s 30 Emerging Photographers to Watch and is currently working with support of grants from ShootQ, NPPA, Aaron Siskind Foundation and National Geographic Magazine. Matt’s prints are in the permanent collections of The Portland Art Museum and The Museum of Fine Arts Houston. These days Eich lives in Norfolk, Virginia with his family while compulsively documenting everything around him.
