Albarrán Cabrera – Des oiseaux

by Atelier EXB

35,00

The poetic universe of the Spanish photographic duo Albarrán Cabrera is presented here through a dreamlike journey to the land of birds. Between reality and illusion, the image questions our relationship to the tangible world and becomes a sensitive vibration through different chromatic shades and photographic processes: platinum print, palladium, cyanotype, silver gelatin, pigmented print …

Each image is like a stopped story. The birds seem to come straight out of fantastic tales; they take flight on shimmering surfaces, scatter among dark foliage while some tight framing underlines their physical presence. The birds become almost abstract, sometimes represented by dots or shadows. Albarrán Cabrera leaves the interpretation of their images to the viewer’s memory to let our imagination fly.

This book is part of the collection Des oiseaux that celebrates, through the eyes of different artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. Ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre offers an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs. For this book, he is interested in the different habitats of birds and their ability to adapt to their environment whether it is celestial, marine or in the heights.
