Matt Black is an award-winning photographer from California’s Central Valley. His work has been featured in National Geographic, The New York Times, The New Yorker, National Public Radio and more.
The purpose of this project is to make the American government and the American people aware of the poverty in their own country.
He took pictures in the poverty areas of California.
He took pictures of the people living in those poverty areas.
There are adults and kids in his pictures. He picked them in order to show the world under what conditions they have to live and in order to humanize the statistics that are related to poverty in the US. He chose these people because they are an example for all the other people living in poverty.
The idea of photographing poverty could be applied to our project too. We could take pictures of the poor at Red Mountain.
