We're excited about this. Probably in part due to the fact that we know deer hunting in Wisconsin all to well. After all, we've been doing it for 24 years-- spent countless hours in a tree, many-a-night in deer camp, and have lost plenty of bills at the poker table. The preparation, the anticipation, and the pure joy of spending time in the woods with friends and family is something that cannot be described in words...but now, thanks to Blaze Orange, you have a visual account of what is hands down, our favorite time of year..
Blaze Orange, captures the heart of deer camp through the eyes of author and photographer, Travis Dewitz. Travis depicts various aspects of the nine day gun season through photography; told in the most unique ways of storied images. Dewitz, is a true visual storyteller as he defines moments of distilled beauty in his stunning book, Blaze Orange. Through the eyes of his illustrative lens, he depicts traditions that are rooted in memories as he feeds the imagination and allows deer hunting to be an integral part of your soul. “Working on this project brought back all the feelings I remembered from my own hunting trips—smelling the pines as a sharp cool wind would push against my face. I tried to show these emotions through my photographs. I was on the hunt again that season, carrying a camera instead of a gun, searching for hunters instead of whitetail deer.” – Travis Dewitz
