from the series: found birds, 2000 – the present

The series found birds began serendipitously when a sparrow fell dead at my feet on the sidewalk as I was walking home from the gym in Brooklyn. Unable to leave it lying there, I took it home with me. After that incident with the sparrow, I began collecting fallen birds and photographing them in the studio. EYES WIDE SHUT, 2010 is one of many portfolios in this series and was included in a survey exhibition at The University of Kentucky Art Museum. A monograph of this portfolio was published in 2011.
