Jesse Burke’s forthcoming monograph Wild & Precious was selected as one of the top ten photobooks for Fall 2015 in American Photo:

On a series of road trips with his young daughter Clover, Jesse Burke creates a photo travelog of naturalistic scenes and metaphysical musings, sort of a visual version of “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.” Inspired by familial imagery by the likes of Sally Mann and Emmet Gowin—with image titles derived from Johnny Cash songs—Burke’s pictures have a lyricism and grace that reflect the duo’s close relationship with each other and with nature, from bloody noses to dead carcasses to majestic seaside sunsets.
