In Birdland, Australian fine-art photographer Leila Jeffreys presents us with a bird-watching experience like no other. The result is a stunning encounter with some of the world's most beautiful birds.
Her love and compassion for her subjects is evident throughout, and every bird has a story, which Jeffreys shares in a profile of nearly every species in the back of the book.
“Fossil and genetic evidence tell us that birds and humans have not shared a common ancestor for more than 300 million years. In Birdland, Leila Jeffreys’ intimate bird portraits close that gap by showing us that birds have minds not entirely unlike ours. We need artists who can remind us that nature is powerful and important and that it deserves our attention and affection.” – Tim Low, author of the ABIA award-winning Where Song Began.
