Prey by Aidyn Levin

Artist’s Statement: While on a fishing boat with my family in Maine, I noticed an increasingly large group of seagulls following behind us. This image captures the interactions between humans and nature. While the main goal of a fishing trip is to feed humans, birds and other marine life benefit as well. This photo is also an exploration in contrasts: between life and death, human and animal, blue and red, wild and tame.
