The idea behind this project was inspired by a need to try something more dream-like, something based on fleeting emotions and thoughts. These glancing moments of inspiration that never seem to last long enough, fluttering away as quickly as they arrived. I wanted to see what would happen if I chased after it anyway.
The result turned into a series of images based on the vivid colors and textures of birds, capturing beauty in raw fashion amid vibrant details of the world we inhabit. Each species was chosen for what it represents to me. My first thought were the hummingbirds, with their colors of red and green, that would often be seen outside my grandma's kitchen window where her bird feeder once hung.
