Bodies and broken wires: Matt Black documents Puerto Rico

I met documentary photographer Matt Black last winter at a Magnum Photos workshop in San Francisco. I was humbled by his approach and his willingness to do the hard work and immerse himself into communities where he is literally a stranger, in order to show the world important truths.

This morning, I came upon his Twitter feed — he’s currently working in Puerto Rico and his images are incredibly powerful. No fake news here.
