Experiments with monochromatic images of local birds within the suburban landscape.

An absorbing, ongoing project highlighting one of my obsessions: the overlap between the human & non-human worlds. In these images, I look for geometry, line, balance & negative space; often the birds are in silhouette on wires, poles or against the sky. I look for pleasing contrasts between the natural curves & textures of my subjects & the rigid outlines of their immediate surrounds. Daily walks often result in more pictures for the set, but I’m very particular about the position of shapes within the frame - if the bird doesn’t cooperate, I wait for another day.
