Publisher Note

Completed in 1974, Alaska's Dalton Highway (known locally as the haul road) is the northernmost road in America. At 414 miles, the predominantly dirt road follows the upper half of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, and is maintained exclusively as the transportation route for the oil fields at Prudhoe Bay. Alaskan photographer Ben Huff followed the road North for the first time in the fall of 2007, in search of the Alaskan frontier. What he found, was a complex landscape – the physical and psychological line between wilderness and oil. For five years he traveled the road from his home in Fairbanks, and created a melancholy portrait of a space that asks us to reconsider our perception of frontier. Ben Huff (b. 1973) lives in Juneau, Alaska. He has exhibited in Alaska, as well as the lower USA, and China. He has received grants from the Rasmuson Foundation and the Alaska Humanities Forum. He will be finalizing the details of The Last Road North monograph during an artist residency at Light Work in Syracuse, NY, in July 2014.
