In 2003, Editions Atlantica, based in France, published a monograph of Rearick’s work from the Basque Country. Public collections include the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, the Centre Nationale de L’Audiovisuel in Luxembourg, and the Southwest Museum of Photography, Boise Art Museum, and Rose Art Museum in the United States.
