This insightful film explores the work of Hunter Barnes, a documentary photographer who captures aspects of culture and communities ignored by the mainstream and often misrepresented in the modern American narrative. His first book, Redneck Roundup, documented the dying communities of the Old West. He spent four years with the Nez Perce tribe; months with a serpent handling congregation in the Appalachian Mountains; bikers, lowriders, and street gangs; inmates in California State Prison. Hunter is widely regarded for earning the trust and respect of these forgotten or overlooked communities and producing exceptional reportage photographic accounts as a result.
