I've never seen so many beautiful birds as I have here in Australia. Just yesterday I nearly got a buzz cut from a white cockatoo zipping past my head. As much as I need a haircut, I'm not convinced this one would be right for me unless I was into psycho chic. And every morning I wake to a chorus of chirping – no alarm clock needed.
Birds are everywhere which is why I was drawn to Marian Drew's painterly photographs. Mixing European still life with lifeless birds native to this area, Marian's intentions are for us to question our relationship to wild animals and our urban environments. Sad but beautiful. Mindful and soft.
