From Matthew Lawrence’s article discussing Jesse Burke’s series “Wild & Precious” for The Take magazine:

Burke humbly calls himself “nature dad photographer guy” and refers to all of his work as pictures (not photos or photographs), almost as though this were an amateur hobby and these photos aren’t being snapped up by museum curators. The RISD Museum acquired a number of the photos, which are on display through September 22nd, 2016. …

The project is by all accounts a hit, one of few art projects to ever receive praise from both Vice and People. Photos from the series have entered museum collections, and the accompanying Wild and Precious book from Daylight Books made a slew of year-end Best Of lists at the end of 2015. Oh, and Time Magazine selected Burke’s Instagram feed as Rhode Island’s best in their coast-to-coast roundup of the nation’s best accounts worth following.
