His new exhibition, Gathered Leaves, at London's Science Museum (they're partnered with the National Media Museum in Bradford, hence their Media Space, focusing on photography and film) includes the span of his four major bodies of work from his first book, Sleeping by the Mississippi (published in 2004), until now. Shown chronologically, it reveals the evolution of his work, and the constant exploration of the vast expanse of the USA.
