“Let Chaos Reign” – Dana Sherwood featured in Upstate Diary

Words by Sabine Hrechdakian Photography by Simon Burstall For most of our history, animals were woven into the fabric of daily life and revered as teachers, tricksters and spirits.

By Barbara Ciurej And Lindsay Lochman, April 14, 2021 “Deep in the night we eat. In the shadows, in secret. Feeding the animal, our nature, our dark, shadow-self. Feeding the wild animals in this way creates a ritual space, the dark makes it sacred as well as secretive. Like that piece of cake, gobbled at the sink when no one was looking. It is an offering to the gods of the wilderness, those feral beings who have no truck with shame…Read More

IN THE PHOTOGRAPH, 16 raw yolks sit in a plastic ice-cube tray, each compartment brimming with albumen. Around the tray lie broken eggshells, cast off on a dimensionless blue surface. As a composition, it’s simple and striking, with saturated Jolly Rancher colors, the kind of image that pops on Instagram. But it doesn’t tell the story we’ve come to expect from food photographs that dominate social media: There’s no teasing promise of deliciousness or even edibility.
