In June 2015 he became a nominee member of Magnum Photos, later an associate member and in 2019 a full member.


In 2014, he began the project The Geography of Poverty, combining geotagged photographs with census data to map and document poor communities. In the summer of 2015, he completed a thirty-state trip photographing seventy of America’s poorest places.


Other major projects in the Central Valley include The Black Okies, for which he was named a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2003 and From Dust to Dust, about indigenous Mexican migrants in California, for which he received the Robert F. Kennedy Award for Excellence in Journalism, Domestic Photography category, in 2007.


In 1999, while working on a story about widespread unemployment in the Central Valley in the aftermath of a citrus freeze, Black met a family from Oaxaca, Mexico, which introduced him to the story of indigenous Mixtec migrants. The following year, he travelled to the Mixteca region of southern Mexico, beginning his project The People of Clouds. Again working in the extended photo-essay form, major stories from this project include The Face of the Mountain, After the Fall and The Monster in the Mountains.


In the early 1990s, Black made several trips to Latin America, making work that in 1993 gained first prize in the Daily Life category of the World Press Photo Award. His 1996 article, "Homage to an Outlaw", published by West Magazine, marked the beginning of his long form photojournalism focusing on rural life in the Central Valley.
