Sedition presents a digital edition of a photograph by Matt Black. Made in 2015, the image was taken in El Paso, Texas and shows a devastated man leaning head-first on a post on a street corner.
Matt Black is a photographer from California’s Central Valley whose work has frequently explored the connections between migration, poverty, agriculture, and the environment in his native rural California and in southern Mexico. Black has photographed over one hundred communities across 44 U.S. states for his project The Geography of Poverty.
The work is included as part of the Magnum at 70 partnership between Magnum Photos and Sedition in celebration of 70 years of the world renowned photography collective. Collections of iconic photographic and video works by artists represented by Magnum Photos will be released as digital editions on Sedition as part of an international programme throughout 2017.
