All the Small Places in North Dakota

Over the past ten years, photographer Andrew Filer has photographed every single named place in the state of North Dakota. From cities and towns to unincorporated places, ghost towns, and the wide, empty spaces between, he visited more than 875 locations across this sparsely populated state. Filer's project is called Everydot, as in "every dot on the map." He's already covered all the named places in North Dakota, and is well on his way through Minnesota, Washington state, and parts of western Canada. He was kind enough to allow me to share some of his North Dakota collection here. Be sure to check out Filer's Kickstarter project, where he's raising funds to continue his trips and publish two books of his photographs.
