In the vein of such iconic photographers as Walker Evans, Robert Frank, and Stephen Shore, Doug Rickard produces photographs of overlooked American communities and people—with a thoroughly 21st-century approach. Instead of crossing the country in a car with his camera, he uses the Internet as his vehicle, sourcing and re-photographing satellite images, snapshots, commercial and surveillance photographs, and, most recently, images from Google Street View. Walking the streets via his virtual proxy in places like Detroit and Dallas, Rickard captured individual street views, which he then re-photographed, printed, and compiled into a critically acclaimed book and exhibition, A New American Picture (2010). Summarizing the project, he explains: “In this case I really felt like I’m simply shining a point-of-view and a spotlight on specific parts of our country that need to be seen. It’s as simple as that.”
