Idaho, True West

The American West has changed immeasurably since Anne Rearick was born, in the sixties, in Boise, Idaho. The increasing population has spread subdivisions and shopping malls accelerating the commodification, tourism and homogenization of the region. Farmland growing onion, sugar beets, alfalfa and sweet corn have been trade with massive housing and the riverbank of the Boise river have been rearranged for the leisure of the Californian passing by.

But Anne Rearick knows where to look for the vestiges of a more authentic West remaining. While exploring the natural beauty and untamed wilderness of Idaho, she highlights what is left of the True West within the small towns and rural life. From St. Marie, one of its northernmost towns, to Nez Perce’s fishing camps that she’s been covering for several years, to the family farms in Weiser hosting the annual Rodeo contest, she follows the locals she has always known focusing, after all, on “beauty and humanism”.
