Last Best Hiding Place is a fascinating photo series, captured by British photographer Tim Richmond, that captures the landscapes and people of the American West. The title of the series is Montanan slang for living under the radar, away from the attentions of people. The series explore places and their inhabitants and captures a romantic, enigmatic side of the great West.

Richmond's fascination with the West is a result of 1970s western films, which prompted him to travel to the region at the age of 17. Later on, he realized that the everyday reality of life in the West was far-removed from the way it was portrayed in the media and film.

For Last Best Hiding Place, Richmond largely relied on film and a large format camera to put together the series.
