I’m borderline obsessed with these photographs of ‘deer beds’ by Brooklyn-based photographer Katherine Wolkoff  and can’t stop staring at them. They make me feel peaceful and I can’t help imaging the gentle rustling sound as the deer move around to get comfy before falling to sleep in the grass.

There is also a beautiful and transporting story them: Katherine took a walk through meadows near her mum’s house on Block Island (off the coast of Montauk on Long Island, New York) where there are lots of deer. She followed the paths the deer made and found their beds. “It was a very poetic experience,” she said. “I felt as if the beds were still warm – that the living, breathing animal had just departed.”

Psst. More incredible art: These paintings that look like photographs.


  1. Thanks so much. They're so beautiful, aren't they? I'm off to NY to Friday so hoping to take a peek at the real thing. 🙂
