—01. Edition of 150.
New York-based photographer Noah Emrich's new book Bountiful is a collection of photos he took during a mostly solo 12,000-mile trip in a minivan around the United States during the summer of 2013. Emrich set out on a less traveled path, avoiding major highways when possible, allowing himself to see and discover beautiful things like huge rock formations and redwoods along the coast and small quaint towns. He also encountered lots of depressed 'Main Streets' that always seemed to feature a liquor store and quite often a Family Dollar, but little else. He wanted to "capture the American landscape," one that, five years later, was still recovering from the financial crisis of 2008. Emrich sums it up best, "These are only slight glimpses of a public culture shifting over time."
