Deserted streets with beer cans blowing down the road… meth warning billboards… a Vietnam vet who lost twenty years of recent memory… a train on its way into a million acres of emptiness… a whole town for sale… a tattooed waitress in neon light. All of these inhabit the Last Best Hiding Place, a Montanan expression for »living under the radar«, where places, like people can seem alone, filled with melancholy. After the death of his wife in 2008, internationally acclaimed photographer Tim Richmond (b. 1959 in England) turned his attention to exploring long-term projects, having worked for over 20 years for major publications that include L’Uomo Vogue, Vogue, Vanity Fair, The Telegraph Magazine, Nowness. The first of these completed projects is Last Best Hiding Place (2007 – 2014), a personal and contemporary odyssey through a landscape of filmic references in the American West. He photographed the project over seven years, travelling thousands of miles every year throughout the states of Wyoming, Montana, Utah, and South Dakota. His prints are in many American and European private collections.
