Ce livre est une réédition (élargie de 30 images) d'une première édition parue chez White Press en 2010 qui avait reçu d'excellentes critiques et fût rapidement épuisée. Cette réédition est parue conjointement chez Aperture et chez Walther König en 2012.
Doug Rickard a parcouru pendant deux ans des endroits reculés des États-Unis via Google Street View et a photographié sur son écran d'ordinateur les images qu'il souhaitait retenir.
Nous voyons donc dans cette série les endroits oubliés des États-Unis, des quartiers délabrés, les habitants et les passants de rues tristes et abandonnées.
Ce travail a été loué par de très nombreux critiques comme un renouvellement important du genre qu'est la photographie de rue.

From the publisher (Aperture edition) :
"Doug Rickard’s A New American Picture offers a startling and fresh perspective on American street photography. While on first glance the work looks reassuringly familiar and well within the traditional bounds of the genre, his methodology is anything but conventional. All of the images are appropriated from Google Street View; over a period of two years, Rickard took advantage of the technology platform’s comprehensive image archive to virtually drive the unseen and overlooked roads of America, bleak places that are forgotten, economically devastated, and abandoned. With an informed and deliberate eye, Rickard finds and decodes these previously photographed scenes of urban and rural decay. He rephotographs the machine-made images as they appear on his computer screen, framing and freeing them from their technological origins. As Geoff Dyer has commented on the work, “It was William Eggleston who coined the phrase 'photographing democratically,' but Rickard has used Google’s indiscriminate omniscience to radically extend this enterprise—technologically, politically, and aesthetically.” A limited-edition monograph of A New American Picture was published by White Press/Schaden in 2010. It was named a best book of 2010 by photo-eye magazine and is now out of print. This edition brings Rickard’s provocative series, including more than forty new images, to a wider audience."
