    Premiering in the UK, AMERICAN GEOGRAPHY explores themes of inequality against the backdrop of the American Dream. The exhibition will coincide with the launch of Black’s book by Thames & Hudson this Autumn.

    For AMERICAN GEOGRAPHY, Matt Black travelled from 2014 to 2020 over 100,000 miles, through 46 states, finding that he could cross the country without ever crossing above the poverty line.

    Magnum features a selection of these images including the spectacular panoramic street landscape Columbus, North Dakota, 2017, imbued with a sense of nostalgia and loneliness; and the iconic Alturas, California, from 2016, depicting the mysterious silhouette of a cowboy, the epitome of the American West.
