The anticipation of the magic that awaits me is just inside the aviary gates. Some days I am enchanted with the lively, vibrant and spirited theatrics on display. Other days, it’s a quiet tenderness, vulnerability and fragility that causes me to pause. As I quietly watch, I am witness to a shared commonality between our worlds. I am captivated by a simple gesture or a spark of personality from these feathered friends. What I see from them reveals an element of myself or the world around me.

Feathered is an on-going project. I am grateful to have local availability to the Tracy Aviary in Salt Lake City, Utah where most of the images have been made. The work has been made without any special or behind the scenes access to the inhabitants.
