Adventures in Treasure Hunting

For her project titled "Scavenger: Adventures in Treasure Hunting", photographer Jenny Riffle has been following a modern day treasure hunter called Riley out on his hunts and photographing the objects he collects. The series explores the line between documentary and fantasy as Jenny looks at the objects Riley finds, what drives him to continue and the mythology and history of the treasure hunting persona. Jenny explains, "As a photographer my search for the perfect image is not that different from Riley’s search for treasure. We are both driven by the thrill of the hunt and possibilities of what we will discover."
