the hunters and the hunted

The day I entered the woods for what would be a three-month creative immersive and great healing adventure in the intercoastal swampland of North Carolina as the only woman living with and caring for nearly 300 male bear and duck hunters.

"The Hunters and the Hunted" is a photographic series that documents my observations of the raw and primal relationships between life, death, and our power(lessness) over nature. 

Some images in this series are graphic. The journal entries that accompany the gallery are excerpts from my personal and online diaries during my time in the woods.
