In 2003, a little before the US presidential elections, I decided that I wanted to document the USA through one town, one small environment. This is the story of a small town, Hungry Horse, situated in the Montana Rocky Mountains. Over the years local industries have disappeared or been relocated to other countries. The recession of 2007 was hard on this area. My documentation is not as much factual as emotional. The work itself is based on a state of mind through the people and the landscapes. I think it took me ten years to be able to understand this place and see beyond the clichés of the USA. Pieter ten Hoopen
