    For thirty years, Eugene Richards has set out to reveal the social situations in his country: poverty, homelessness, drugs, gangs and violence. Through dark photos, crossed by violent diagonals, by gestures that break the frame and split up bodies in the desolate settings, he extends America a mirror and is not kind about it. The very direct style of his compositions, which are simultaneously pure and violent and always in black and white, is a cry against exclusion and paints a portrait of an America that Americans do not want to see.
