The Beaver as almost every one knows is an amphibeous animal but the instinct with which it is possessed surpasses the reason of a no small portion of the human race.

Russell, Osborne, b. 1814. Journal of a trapper : or, Nine years in the Rocky Mountains, 1834-1843 : being a general description of the country, climate, rivers, lakes, mountains, etc., and a view of the life by a hunter in those regions by Osborne Russell. (via pathlesswoodland)

I want this journal, so badly.

Here at Treading Art we emphasize the importance of training your aesthetic eye. And in our opinion, that is best done by viewing art that is accomplished in a variety of mediums as well as by those at differing career levels. For this avail, we introduce the photographs of Rebecca Lessner.  

Some background…In mid-fall we were lucky to meet Rebecca as she enthusiastically applied to help shoot Discover Pittsburgh, Treading Art’s city-wide program of events. Her gusto for the project transcended into the desire to stay on as Treading Art’s photography intern and the professional/mentoring relationship has blossomed since. Melissa and I will certainly be sad, and feel the loss, when her time comes to flourish at her next opportunity. As she graduates from Point Park University next month we are ecstatic that a portion of her thesis work, “Hunter Gatherer,” is on exhibit at The Mine Factory until April 13th.

In the meantime, we take pride in being able to tease you with a few of Rebecca’s photographs not included in the show. Use this privy as enticement to view the rest of her work, and the other eight rising artists, before it closes.

To better understand her thesis, enjoy these words directly from the artist:

The reason I chose to shoot Hunter Gatherer comes from my childhood growing up in a backwoods small-town. It was not only the woods that influenced my work, but also my family and my father’s friends. Hunting in a small town becomes a family affair. I am as close with my dad’s hunting buddies as I am my family. What is most influential, the awareness I believe I’ve taken away from watching my father and his friends plan a hunt, is the amount of thought and precision they put into it. I believe the reverence and gratitude that comes from gathering ones own food is often overlooked. I felt a draw to show the direct relationship hunter gatherers have with the land they personally cultivate and protect.

While most serious upland hunters wouldn’t think of leaving their dogs at home, sometimes opportunities to hunt good land (or between big trips) are lost.  Plenty of other hunters may want to tackle upland birds but don’t have dogs, but that’s no reason to stay home.
