Wild Woman (2021)

Wild Woman (2021)

Dolly Mattel and I hiked to Crystal Lakes in Mount Rainier National Park on a cool, damp September day in 2021. Although the trail is usually busy, that day we had it to ourselves except for a single hiker coming out as we went in. The low clouds and brooding steel gray sky were perfect for black and white photography. The power of this image, for me, comes from how well Dolly's attitude matches the landscape around her: free, unfettered, wild. She is part of the wilderness, and it is part of her.
