Jesse Burke’s series “Wild & Precious” selected as a top pick by editor Holly Stuart Hughes in Photo District News:

“I want my children to genuinely understand how magical the world we inhabit is and how we, as humans, are an integral part of the system,” Burke writes. “I want them to feel a deep connection to every aspect of their surroundings.” Many of the photos in “Wild & Precious” show the forests and rocky coastline they explored, but much of the series conveys his awe and delight in his daughter’s adventurous spirit. He shows Clover staring out to sea from atop a rock on the shore, nestled in the tall grass of a field, holding a butterfly, and also tucked into a bed in a roadside motel.
