This is a photograph from artist (and former Stranger photographer) Annie Musselman's book Finding Trust. Someone online once thought it was a taxidermy portrait—which is absolutely incorrect. It's a portrait of a rescued animal Annie encountered at the Sarvey Wildlife Care Center in Arlington, Washington—a coyote that's very much alive.
From Annie's artist statement, about being at Sarvey:
Located in the foothills of the beautiful Cascade Mountain Range, Sarvey is a place where injured, wild creatures come to finish their journey or start a new one. It’s a place where I’ve seen love, trust, and intuition that equals that of a mother and child; a home where a few humans have come together to save the lives of many precious creatures. I believe we must take care of each other in order to survive.
There are five more days to help Annie get Finding Trust published. I, for one, haven't donated much on Kickstarter in the past six months—but I believe in this project completely. DONATE HERE.
