During the 1990s, Cleveland-born Barbara Bosworth worked on a series about modern-day hunters, dense images with personal and archetypical metaphors that address the continual cycles of life, death, and renewal. In this stark portrait of a hunter and his prey, captured in the endless Montana winter terrain, she investigated the primal interaction between humankind, animal, and the landscape.
