Bird was made directly after I published my first book, Creature. Bird was about challenging myself to work with a subject that was both harder to capture and create an emotional connection with. To execute my objective, I travelled the world to find a range of species from common to extremely rare.
The birds, from the intimacy of the very small to the majesty of the very large, acquire a transcendental dignity, each one becoming a god in its own universe. The powerful white light transfers its own intensity to the birds and transforms them into mythical objects of paradise, newly resplendent in all their colours.
