Birds, by Stephen Gill

Sold Out

A "book of birds" as the cover says, although one suspects that ornithologists would be disappointed. Says Gill,

About 20 years later after spending more time making work inspired by cities (mostly East London) I decided to re visit the subject of birds. This time in the city and built up areas. I wanted to make a study of how birds fit and mould their lives around ours and adapt to what we have created. I was also very interested to hear that scientists found that birds in towns and cities sing louder or use higher frequencies compared to the same rural species so they can be heard above the man-made noise.
