Pieter ten Hoopen: Hungry Horse
In this intimate portrait of an unfamiliar America, Pieter Ten Hoopen 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 here over a period of six years, Ten Hoopen discovered great compassion and human warmth in an environment beset by unemployment, drugs and deprivation. The photographs, which have won several prestigious prizes, are accompanied by an essay from Luke Mogelson of the New York Times magazine and a DVD with ten Hoopens documentary film about Hungry Horse, produced by MediaStorm.
In 2010, Pieter ten Hoopen won two World Press Photo Awards in the portraits and daily life categories for Hungry Horse.
