15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Decoys to Coax Ducks

I don't hunt. I'm not against it, I just don't do it. When a friend of mine asked me to do a lifestyle shoot of him hunting ducks, though, I didn't hesitate. There's something primal in hunting animals, in using as much of their body as possible for numerous reasons. I set out to show this man's enjoyment of the hunt, and I think I ended up with photos of a beautiful event.
