1938, Walker Evan’s “American Photographs”

1955, Robert Frank’s “The Americas”

1986, Sebastiao Salgado’s “Other Americas”

The lineage is fraught with excellence.  Grossly intimidating, at best.

Published by Steidl, Christopher Morris’ “Americans” is out this month. About the body of work, in Time LightBox, Morris says “I sought to make an anthropological study of America—not for this week, or for this past election cycle—but a body of work that future generations could look back on to get a sense of the country’s mood.”

Congrats, Christopher.
