There is a strange calmness I love about these photographs from Amy Stein’s Domesticated series. For anyone who lives in the American west, close to the foothills or in the mountains, there is probably sense a familiarity with some of these images.
My photographs serve as modern dioramas of our new natural history. Within these scenes I explore our paradoxical relationship with the “wild” and how our conflicting impulses continue to evolve and alter the behavior of both humans and animals.
