From his artist statement—"I see a world where blood and sweat mix with sunsets and snowdrifts"—Rhode Island photographer Jesse Burke sounds like a cheeseball. But his work delivers on the romantic promises he makes about depicting masculinity as both fragile and bloodthirsty. Never, never have shotgunning beer and looking out onto a lake through a curtain of flowers fit so perfectly together. And the salon installation is gorgeous.
