Hunting with Hawks

I love the title of this article by Christopher McDougall. I also love that images from my series Hersteading: Cold Antler Farm were chosen to accompany his words in the New York Times. It is a short and insightful article with depth–not easy to do because Jenna Woginrich, the girl that hunts with hawks, is such a complex renaissance woman.

Yet he managed to capture her humor too. For as serious as she is with caring for her animals, there is always laughter and a bit of the absurd. For example, her last two hawks were named after actresses she admires, Anna Kendrick and Aya Cash:

“I have got to stop naming hawks after people,” Jenna says. “It’s really going to mess up their Google results. Someone out there is going to find my stuff online and think the star of ‘Pitch Perfect’ killed a mouse in my living room.”

So grateful to Jenna for letting me photograph her world; there’s never a dull moment.

If you would like to own the book from the Hersteading exhibition (you know you do!), click HERE or the button below. It’s 38 pages of strength, struggle, sass and dedication.

If you prefer smaller and sharable images, Jenna and I partnered on this set of giftcards, here. But by all means, if you love to read be sure to check out Jenna’s blog, as she is also the girl that tells stories.
