Book Description : The books contains twelve black & white photographs of birds and trees. The photobook has an innovative format, it’s unbound and offers a collection of 12 posters. When the pages are flipped as a traditional book, you will get a mix of images (half bird-half tree). You can play with the format and find new sequences.
With this project I wanted to experiment with my vision of nature. I wanted to fragment the forms that I found in the nature in order to show a poetic vision of the brutality of the real.
