"25 drivers start every season in Formula One, and each year, two of us die. What kind of person does a job like this? Not normal men, for sure. Rebels, lunatics, dreamers… people who are desperate to make a mark and are prepared to die trying. My name is Niki Lauda. In racing, people know me for two things. The first is my rivalry with him. I don’t know why it became such a big thing. We were just drivers… busting each other’s balls. To me this is perfectly normal but other people saw it differently… that whatever it was between us went deeper. The other thing I’m remembered for is what happened on the first, August 1976, when I was chasing him like an asshole." - Rush

For seven years, British photographer Tim Richmond has documented the American West for his series Last Best Hiding Place. The title, he learned, is Montanan slang for living under the radar. An exploration of place, but also the people who belong there, Richmond captures an enigmatic vision of the mythical West.
A longstanding fascination with the West, inspired by 70s western films, sparked his curiosity to explore the American frontier at the age of 17. Later on in life, Richmond was commissioned to shoot a feature on the rodeo in Wyoming. While shooting, he noticed the myth of the rodeo masked the everyday reality of life. He decided to document a personal journey of small town and rural life of Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota and Utah.
