The “Wild and Precious” works bring together treasures from a series of road trips traveled over five years by photographer Burke and his daughter Clover to explore the natural world. To encourage a connection between his child and nature, Burke used these adventures to give her an education that he considers essential, one that develops appreciation, respect, conservation, and self-confidence.
Together this father-and-daughter team studied beaches, land, sky, and animals. While on the road, they documented the routes they drove, the landscapes they discovered, the creatures they encountered, and even the roadside motels where they slept.
Burke divides his time between personal art projects and commissioned work. A New England native, he currently lives in Rhode Island with his wife and their three daughters, Clover Lee, Poppy Dee, and Honey Bee.
