Pre-Order of Matt Eich's 2nd book in The Invisible Yoke series now accepted. Reserve your copy now.

Scheduled release in October 2018.

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 neighborhoods, 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 neighborhood. Consisting of both documentary portraiture and landscape, Eich narrates 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. 

After the release of Matt's first book Carry Me Ohio, thanks to the strong response by the media (New Yorker, The Atlantic, CNN) and the public, the book sold out within a few weeks. With this 2nd release - examining America's deepening race and class disparities - we like to give more people the chance to get a book. We have decided to start pre-order for the first 250 copies early. If you order the book now you will be first in line to receive it, once we get it in stock in late October.
