Publisher's description

Terri Weifenbach’s photographs present the secret world of nature, populated by birds. Created in the space of her personal garden, they reveal the life hidden in the tits, sparrows, and various passerines that nest in urban gardens. Oscillating between fantasy and reality, her images seem to be taken on the sly. They show stolen moments: suspended flights, birds dissimulated in the foliage, a loner gallantly perched on a branch, but also aerial ballets of linnets and chases between jays and thrushes. Most often taken at ground level, nose in the grass with the lens lost among the flowers, her photographs appear to substitute the ornithologist’s enthralled eye as it observes another world: that of birds.

The seasons follow in succession; the colours of the garden vary, passing from oranges, to the bright blues and greens of summer, to the immaculate white of winter. Saturated light and colour, plays on blurred and crystal-clear details, and freeze frames depict a “supra-reality”. Terri Weifenbach immerses us in the infinitely small, transporting us into a particularly lively world in which birds race at top speed, dance, or settle, freeze, and gather in parliaments. She reveals the marvels of their world.
