Hungry Horse: Legends of the Everyday, is a film series and photography project created by internationally acclaimed photographer Pieter ten Hoopen in collaboration with MediaStorm, and is based on over ten years of work in and around the small Montana town of Hungry Horse. The project was published on November 3rd, preceded by a succesful Kickstarter fundraiser.
In the films, Pieter touches on the struggles of poverty, drug use, loneliness and loss. But he more accurately captures the spirit of renewal, peace and serenity in the lives of the people he documents through stunning landscapes and intimate oral histories. Hungry Horse: Legends of the Everyday follows the mythical structure of its subjects’ lives, Charlie, Katie and Brad Lee, and it is through their stories, and Pieter’s powerful imagery that we learn about the timeless cycle of adventure, loss and renewal. Photos of the project can be viewed here. Read the New Yorker article on Ten Hoopen’s project here.
