Audrey Corregan: Obviously, Maybe, Definitely Birds
Posted by Jay at 4:00 PM
Photographs of wild and dangerous animals right in front of your face can be a scary. But what about the somewhat opposite situation? Here, the animals turn their backs to you, as if they don't want you to see them. These intriguing photographs by Audrey Corregan seem to show or hide something so obviously obvious, yet not exactly so obvious.
In her series Obviously, Corregan takes pictures of different species of birds, but only do so from the back. The images show a beautiful, but often dismissed angle of these feathered creatures. The back view also hints at something even more beautiful that is denied to the viewer. It might be birds' front view, but it might also be something even more captivating just in front of the birds and out of the viewer's sight.
Here is Audrey Corregan's website, with a few more obvious of birds from her series Obviously.
