Publisher's description: In this intimate portrait of an unfamiliar America, award-winning Swedish photojournalist Pieter ten Hoopen (born 1974) takes us to Hungry Horse, Montana. One in three residents of this small town subsist below the poverty line, and most live in trailers and caravans. During extended periods spent in Hungry Horse over the course of more than ten years, the artist discovered great compassion and human warmth in an environment beset by unemployment, drugs and deprivation. "I think it took me more than ten years to understand this place and see beyond the cliches of the USA," reflected Ten Hoopen. Portraits of Hungry Horse's residents are juxtaposed in this volume with landscapes showing the area's staggering natural beauty. Hungry Horse includes an essay by New York Times Magazine contributing writer Luke Mogelson and a DVD of Ten Hoopen's documentary film about the town.
