My life and my upbringing has inspired me to make work about the hunting experience. This body of work shows the positives of hunting; the familial bonds, the connection to nature that it provides, and it comments on the social and historical impact of hunting.
I am creating this body of work for the same reasons I hunt: for the connection to my environment and my food, for the adoration of being outside, for the bonds made with family and friends, and for the need to get away from a disconnected existence. I hunt because I love wildlife and have a vested interest in the conservation of wildlife and wild places, and to be a participant in the raw, unforgiving truth of life.
These images are a first-person account made to shift the culturally preconceived perception of hunters. We’re not separate from nature but deeply connected to land, animal, and sustenance.
