Americans is the second book in a series on America by Christopher Morris. While the first book My America (Steidl, 2006) focused on Republican nationalism, Americans takes a much broader journey across American society. With an empathetic and critical eye, Morris presents a nation in a state of perpetual loss and its people searching for an identity stranded within two long-running wars and an economy on the verge of collapse. Christopher Morris, born in California in 1958, began his career as a documentary conflict photographer, working almost exclusively with Time Magazine, where he has been on contract since 1990. Parallel to his career as a photojournalist, Morris has recently expanded into the fashion world, working for such clients as Roberto Cavalli and magazines on the collections of Louis Vuitton, Prada and Max Mara. Morris has received many awards including the Robert Capa Gold Medal, the Olivier Rebbot Award, and the Infinity Award for photojournalism from the International Center of Photography. Morris is a founding member of VII Photo Agency in New York.
