The Trash Eaters
Amy Steinâ€™s photographic series â€œDomesticatedâ€ explores our paradoxical relationship with the “wild.â€ We at once seek connection with the mystery and freedom of the natural world, yet we continuously tame the wild around us and compulsively control the wild within our own nature. Within her work primal issues of comfort and fear, dependence and determination, submission and dominance play out in images of direct and hidden confrontations between humans and animals. The narratives are set in and around Matamoras, a small town in Northeast Pennsylvania, which borders a state forest.
