The Wild Run
(Spawning Salmon)

While fording a river in Alaska during spawning season, numerous Cohoe salmon leaped high above the water in their journey upstream. The opposing force of the spawning run and the natural flow of the water around me inspired this work. Upon my return home, I sought to capture the upper cut of the jaw, the ruddiness of the belly characteristic of spawning salmon.

The highly polished heads are meant to evoke wetness and are a contrasting texture to the scaly body of the salmon.
