From the perspectives of fairy-tale studies and ecocriticism, this article examines how photographer Amy Stein’s Domesticated series (2005–2007) restages human–animal encounters by drawing on contemporary narratives about the changing relationship between people and wildlife as the human-built world increasingly encroaches on the natural environment. Stein’s photographic tableaux using taxidermied animals help us see how humans and other animals respond to this change and invite us to reimagine traditional tales about human–animal interactions from both sides of the boundary, challenging our anthropocentric perspectives.
