Rats with Wings
and Beautiful Things

Rats with Wings and Beautiful Things is a photographic series that captures birds in ways that can be seen as part of a narrative. Showing birds interacting with their environment and each other can anthropomorphize them, similar to characters in a book or movie. Light plays a role in the mood of each piece. My series celebrates the personalities of these animals and draws on the connections that can be made between their social behavior and ours as humans. The work is inspired as much by observational comedy as it is by contemporary photography.

The photographic medium allows me to free up my approach to art-making and be spontaneous.
