Summer Hike


By Corey Torpie



This photo story was captured by Corey Torpie in Westchester County and features her brother and childhood dog on their final outing. The images were taken on medium format film with a toy camera. The experimental photography method was chosen to create an ethereal look and to emphasize a sense of place over form.
