Feathered friends are the subject of Bird, the latest book from Gary Heery. To capture the birds in motion he erected a translucent tent, creating an intimate and contained environment in which the birds could fly. “I treated it, not unlike any other portraiture situation, as a kind of controlled spontaneity,” he says. The end result is a collection of dynamic, yet almost clinically detailed, images, with each bird’s distinct personality captured in all its glory.
Gary Heery: Selected Works 1976 - 2013 is a career retrospective from Australia's premiere portrait photographer. The book features 300 + pages of images from Life, Esquire, Vogue and Rolling Stone, as well as album covers and movie posters of stars such as Madonna, Susan Sarandon, Jodie Foster, Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett and Andy Warhol, and portraits from his renowned flora and fauna collection.
