American Mirror is an unflinching testament of the United States in the twenty-first century by award-winning photographer Philip Montgomery. One of the most accomplished photographers of this generation, Montgomery has chronicled dramatic transformations of American lives and society through intimate and powerful reporting and a signature black-and-white style. Montgomery’s first book brings together iconic images from 2013–21—from the protest movements following Michael Brown’s 2014 murder by police in Ferguson, Missouri, and the 2017 aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, to the opioid addiction crisis in Ohio, and the epicenter of the COVID-19 global pandemic fought by frontline healthcare workers in New York’s hospitals.

Philip Montgomery (born in California, 1988) has published photography covering American politics, culture, and society in numerous magazines and newspapers, including the New Yorker, Vanity Fair, New York Times Magazine, Zeit Magazine, TIME, Harper’s, Guardian, Aperture, and Foam Magazine. In 2018, he received a National Magazine Award for his reporting on the opioid epidemic in the US.
