Amy Stein

Amy Stein explores the paradoxical relationship with the "wild" and how our conflicting impulses continue to evolve and alter the behavior of both humans and animals. She makes an interesting point saying how we as humans seek connection with the mystery and freedom of the natural world, but we continually strive to tame the wild around us. The photographs are constructed based on real stories from local newspapers and oral histories of intentional and random interactions between humans and animals.
