“I Love You, I’m Leaving is my meditation on familial bonds, longing, and memory. The series borrows from personal experience and the visual language of the everyday in order to create a fictional account that mirrors my reality. Made during a time of personal domestic unease, I photographed as my parents separated, and my family moved to a new city.” — Matt Eich

Created during a time of personal domestic unease, I made this work when my parents separated after 33 years of marriage and my wife, children and I had moved to a new city. This series borrows from personal experience and the visual language of the everyday in order to create a fictional account that mirrors my reality. Photographs are reductions, distillations, half-truths, and complete fabrications. They can only describe the surface of things, while I am interested in the intangible: memory and emotional resonance. I photograph with the knowledge that our place in this world is tenuous, comprised of little more than memory and story. Memory is fragile; the moments are fleeting and have to be wrestled into a permanent state. If we are at risk of forgetting too much of our world and ourselves, photography is the antidote.” — Matt Eich
