Feature - The Geography of Poverty: Heartland
Matt Black
The third of photographer Matt Black’s cross-country trips, for his ongoing project the Geography of Poverty, took him on a journey of 23,000 miles across 22 states. From farm towns in Central California and ranching communities Oregon, across Native American reservations on the Great Plains, to the political convention cities of Cleveland, Ohio, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the project took the temperature of the American Dream in a time of growing political divisions in the US.
