From Aline Smithson’s article for Lenscratch:
Jesse Burke is so much more than a celebrated photographer–he is a husband, father, storyteller, and champion of the natural world. His new monograph, Wild & Precious, published by Daylight Books, elevates his five-year personal narrative of fatherhood to a poetic collection of small stories that reveal the complexity and fragility of childhood and importance of a relationship with nature. The book is accompanied by an essay by Karen Irvine, Curator and associate director, Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College Chicago, an essay by Ben Hewitt, Author of Home Grown: Adventures in Parenting off the Beaten Path, Unschooling, and Reconnecting with the Natural World, a poem by Dallas Clayton and letters by Jesse and Clover Burke.
