Shortly after her mother died, Annie Marie Musselman started photographing injured animals at the Sarvey Wildlife Care Center. Soon she had a body of work that explored the delicate union of people and animals, a tremendously successful Kickstarter campaign and her first monograph. Hear how she was able to turn a personal project into a career-defining body of work and the triumphs and pitfalls she continues to encounter.
