The LBM Dispatch is an irregularly published newspaper of the North American ramblings of photographer Alec Soth and writer Brad Zellar.

For the fifth edition of The LBM Dispatch, Alec Soth and Brad Zellar hit the road in early May and drove through a snowstorm across the plains, headed for the Rocky Mountains. They visited dozens of towns in Colorado, met hundreds of people, and spent two weeks roaming both sides of the Continental Divide and battling the altitude, weather, technical problems, and the unshakeable John Denver. The result was the most challenging and, in many ways, most harrowing Dispatch trek yet.

Alec Soth (b. 1969) is a photographer born and based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His photographs have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including the 2004 Whitney and São Paulo Biennials. Soth has been the recipient of numerous fellowships and awards, including the Guggenheim Fellowship (2013). In 2008, Soth started his own publishing company, Little Brown Mushroom. Soth is represented by Sean Kelly in New York, Weinstein Gallery in Minneapolis, Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco, and is a member of Magnum Photos.
