About the project

"My design piece for Louis' birthday has been made with prints on handmade Japanese Washi paper inspired by calligraphy and Japanese wood cuts. The images are from my most recent project 'Black Sun'. With this art project I have photographed large starling murmurations. The graphic and organic shapes of the starling murmurations range from meditative to highly dramatic as they perform their incredible ballet about life and death. I have travelled along the migration routes of the starling (Sturnus vulgaris) for four years. This photographic investigation has taken me to Denmark, Rome, the Netherlands, England and Catalonia. I hope to inspire freedom, boundless travelling and universal interconnectedness."
