Leila Jeffreys – Des oiseaux

by Atelier EXB

35,00

In this book, Leila Jeffreys invites us on a journey through the tropical forests and jungles of the world to meet the amazing species of birds she has been photographing since 2008: “I have always noticed that many birds have particular expressions. To capture them, I had to find a way to photograph them in a way that would bring out their own character. My favorite way to photograph them is to set up a portrait studio in a place that is familiar to them. I talk to them as I work so they interact with me. Cultivating this art of waiting, Leila Jeffreys delivers a gallery of whimsical yet hyper-realistic portraits populated by cockatoos, wild parakeets, five-colored diamonds and other exotic species of colorful animals. In turn, graceful, mischievous, fierce, proud, shy, posers: each bird photographed lets its personality shine through and seems to want to dialogue with the viewer. His practice underlines the anthropomorphism shared between man and animal.

This book is part of the Des oiseaux collection, which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. The ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre proposes an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs.
