Orion, in Greek mythology, was the greatest of hunters. He was a hero, in the classic Greek sense of the word, meaning part god, part human. He was giant of stature, and the most beautiful of men. In the myth, Orion lives through a series of cycles that follow the same progression: from aggression, to transgression, to punishment, and to redemption. These cycles eventually end when Orion outrages (and possibly rapes) Artemis, his hunting-goddess companion, and is killed by Artemis through a deceit by her brother Apollo. As Doug Lowell photographed Orion, he set out to find people who were agressively hunting for something, much in the same way he was hunting for pictures.

Orion was nominated for the 2012 MACK First Book Award.
