Wright Morris (1910-1998) set out to capture “what it is to be an American”. His images betray a concern to inanimate objects, everyday things that characterised rural and small-town American life in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. Morris captured scenes that revealed a largely invisible, slowly disappearing life as it was lived in his native state Nebraska and wherever else his wanderings in the American countryside took him.
