We have a small obsession with paintings of America from way back when…before we started building, tearing down and changing.

They are simple photos. No crazy light. No overly complicated compositions. Nothing hidden. Nothing implied. Just something that appears untouched. Unspoiled. And best bonus? The Sandy River area, where landscape photographer Allie took a year to photograph this series, is the area that was explored by that famous dynamic duo Lewis & Clark. Love that mix up between modern times and historical times. More from The Great Leap Sideways (good interview, too)
