Her image was taken in Princetown, New Jersey, just before hurricane Irene hit the East Coast “I went for a run early one morning and found this beautiful young stag, very recently dead. When I went back to get my camera I also hauled my children out of their game of dressing up – which is how my eldest ended up here: a little scared, a little devastated, wearing a tutu and not too close.”
