From Jordan G. Teicher’s article for Slate:

When Jesse Burke’s oldest daughter, Clover, was nearly 5, he took her on a road trip from their home in Rhode Island up the coast to Canada. His plan was to photograph landscapes, but inevitably, he started taking photos of Clover as well. Halfway through their journey, he realized that those photos were the most interesting ones. Wild & Precious, which will be published by Daylight Books on Oct. 15, collects photos from more than two dozen trips the pair took together over the next five years.

Sometimes they’d just hop in the car and roam New England for the weekend. Other times they’d get on a plane and spend weeks in another part of the country during school vacations. The goal was always to further instill in Clover a knowledge and appreciation of nature.
