From Suzanne Revy’s guest post on What Will You Remember? discussing photography books about fatherhood, including Jesse Burke’s monograph “Wild & Precious”:
Burke traveled with his daughter, Clover, to mountains and beaches over a period of five years, exploring a vast natural world. The resulting book, Wild & Precious, is not only full of beautiful landscape and still life images, but is an extended portrait of a growing girl and the relationship she shares with her father. We are introduced to the diverse landscapes they visited; she is small and vulnerable within many of them, but in others she gently cradles fragile creatures or flora in her hands, which loom large, emphasizing nature’s own vulnerability in the presence of humans.
