“In the spring of 2012, a bird flew into a window outside of my patio. It was the first warm day of the year. I took a photograph and buried the bird. The image haunted me for a very long time. Two months later, I found myself living on a tiny farm in upstate New York. One day a car drove up to the farmhouse. In the backseat sat a 5-day-old deer. The driver had passed it on the road, next to its dead mother. She had named the deer Star Wars. For the next three months, Starry was my baby and one of my best friends. And then, towards the end of the summer, she jumped off into the brush and I never saw her again. These photographs, for me, capture that strange space between life and death – and the magic of a transient friendship.”
