Catch and Release

Catch and Release is a series on living in Maine and human relationships with their environment. The pieces explore the mating and behavior patterns of various local Maine mammals, birds, and fish as they correspond to my own personal relationship experiences. The photographs below were created following researchers from Biodiversity Research Institute ( as they catch birds for their environmental studies. Through the work, I seek to explore empathy and how to relate to others by looking at wildlife and their habits.
