WILD AT HEART

Growing up as a Boy Scout in rural Pennsylvania, photographer Joseph O. Holmes found solace in winter hikes through the woods and campouts in the snow. Nature has seemingly always guided Holmes: first in the organic way he shifted his career from lawyer to lensman, and now in how he chooses his subject matter. Holmes often spends his days wandering around New York City, letting curiosity lead the way. His instinctual approach has taken him inside Streit’s, famed for their matzo balls; Zuccotti Park during Occupy Wall Street; legendary music venue CBGB; and, of course, Brooklyn’s expansive Prospect Park. It was there, over a few snowy winters, that Holmes reconnected with his childhood love of hiking in the snow. The upshot is his series Urban Wilderness, which depicts the park as a sweeping haven for dogs (and people) to run and play within the confines of New York.
