Open Edition "I saw children like this in my youth while hunting with my father in the Carolina lowcountry. Children who through necessity, were forced to grow up fast. The girl walks in mans shoes wearing a pair of heavy boots. Yet under her masculine jacket, the hem of a delicately flowered skirt reveals her femininity. The Bloodhound, a breed favored by royalty, symbolically connects the girl to her own noble soul. The 16-gauge shotgun held by the girl is more than a means to feed her family. It embodies a code of ethics and responsibility handed down through generations. -- The Artist, John Doyle
