I asked Leah to cradle a dead Boobook owl killed
by a car, and hold whatever thoughts came
into her mind – then I asked her to look at the
camera. She stared straight down the lens with
an expression of resigned sadness and forceful
grace. In hindsight, this first picture was all I
needed to take. Animals are our witnesses. Even
in death they offer us the opportunity for reimaging
our often fraught relationship with the
natural world. They are also a call to arms in the
fight to save it.
