This series of birds, from the 2013 exhibition “The Commoners”.
The birds pose proudly as if sitting for a studio portrait, puffed up, solemn and dignified
In each of the images, the soul of the bird has been captured, creating a connection with the viewer enabling us to relate to them on an emotional level. The birds have all been named, giving them a character and identity of their own
