Woman Hunting with Dog, Bagby 20

Title
Woman Hunting with Dog, Bagby 20
Description
This color photograph features a woman holding a rifle and adorned in gear hunting in the wilderness alongside her dog. This powerful image reflects an evolving view and paradigm shift of women (and how Western society views them) emerging in the 1960s-70s: strong and independent females equal to men in their skill and expertise. The woman is in action and the viewer is invited to witness the thrill of the hunt and liberation of power over a small portion of nature's dominion.
