Amy Stein describes the photographs of her "Domesticated" series as "modern dioramas of our new natural history."
She observes and captures certain "artificial spaces" that she considers as both a "passage and barrier between domestic space and the wild." The concepts for her photos are based on news and stories of human-animal interactions, and most of the animals shown are stuffed.
As humans, Amy says, we seem to "at once seek connection with the mystery and freedom of the natural world, yet we continually strive to tame the wild around us and compulsively control the wild within our own nature." :via Amy Stein
