pigeon study, 2007-2008
a document of decay and transformation
The first image in this series was shot in November of 2007. I continued to photograph this bird until June of 2008. The images that appear here were sent out as a weekly email. This website was constructed as those mailings were going out. Each week a new image was added to the website until the mailings had all been sent and the website was complete. The same period of time elapsed sending the weekly mailing as it took to shoot the images in this portfolio. These images appeared simultaneously on the literary website Exquisite Corpse - Journal of Letters and Life edited by Andrei Codrescu in New Orleans.
This work also exists as a portfolio of 24 - 20" x 24" archival ink jet prints housed in a lipped clamshell box covered in Asahi book cloth.
