Cartography and map making have, until the last fifty years, held a great deal of sway on our impressions of the world. But with the advent of technologies like Google Maps, it would seem that our impressions of the world have collapsed and the magic of maps has fallen to the wayside.

Matthew Cusick’s portraits repurpose maps to make compelling portraits from American Cultural Icons. The merge of history is two-fold in both the iconography and the use of the materials.
