This series of birds photographed by Joel Conison shows birds as you rarely are accustomed to seeing them. Photographed as one would make a portrait of a person, these birds return your gaze. These larger than life size images allow you to see the details of each bird. The birds have been placed into a portrait situation and lit as one would have their portrait taken in a studio. All photographs are printed with a printer whose color inks have been replaced with a set of black inks, solid black and six shades of gray.
