About this book

Collection of essays and photographs about our treatment of the wild. Inspired by John Fowles' novel The Collector and his subsequent writings against the collection of nature, the still-life photographs picture the obsessions of those who collect and label nature's curiosities, and the essays examines our relationships with nature, as expressed through collecting.
