Recording Near is a personal and philosophical exploration of what it means to recognize and communicate the multiple values of nature (known in this piece through the sacred, more-than-human world) through documentary filmmaking and photography. Specifically, this paper looks at how these values can be accessed through fishing and uses the philosophical frameworks of Heidegger, Synder and Berry.
