    Dead Deer Walking

    Kathleen Fonseca (Realtorsguide To The USA) developes narratives using photos sourced from real estate listings that explore American culture, politics and life in general. ~This series is called “Dead Deer Walking”. The photos are generated without human intervention. Infrared cameras are set up at wildlife feeding stations on farms and ranches, equipped with automatic flash and triggered by motion sensors. The sole purpose of the feeding stations is to develop and provide for a growing population of wildlife for hunting purposes. Animals are accustomed to finding food at these stations, the owner knows where to find the animals and the rest is venison in the freezer and a bust mounted over the fireplace. These photos are included in real estate listings to seduce the right buyer with the promise of abundant prey and thrilling hunts. I find the photos graceful, ghostly, ethereal and lovely.
