Freeman Taxidermy

Yesterday, I photographed Clint Freeman as part of my project to document Harrisburg, Missouri. Over the last few years, Freeman, a Harrisburg native, has taken taxidermy from a hobby to a profession. On Monday, he was touching up two deer mounts.

Harrisburg Hazard House

For the next couple weeks, I'll be photographing in and around Harrisburg, Missouri. This photo is from the Hazard House just south of town. Named for the past owners, the home is flanked by a long fence filled with old scraps, deer skulls, dolls and more. For the last decade, Terry McBride has been renovating the 170-year-old farm house. When he bought the house, the previous owners had mostly abandoned the property and the home was filled with junk. This junk now fills the 50-foot fence, although McBride holds onto some of the more valuable pieces like an 1855 nickel. I'll be posting more photos from the Hazard House and Harrisburg in the coming weeks.  Enjoy this preview.

Who's Behind Your Burger?

For the last several weeks, I've been working on a project to document the farmers, bakers, and ranchers who are bringing a hamburger to your table. The stories are all together now on my website where you can browse the origins of your dinner. Go take a look and enjoy.

Kansas City Polar Bear

Last week we spent an early summer day at the Kansas City Zoo. Despite the unusually warm March weather, there was an extremely active polar bear by the entrance. Here are a few photos from the day. Enjoy.

Here are a few details from some of the other animals.
