On the Brink
As you age, it is ridiculous how fast birding creeps up on you. You spend your whole life indifferent to birds, and then one day you’re like “damn, is that a yellow throated warbler?” Or at least that’s how it kind of went with me. In this current series I capture intimate portraits of rare and extinct birds of North America, (including, yes, the Yellow-Throated Warbler). I’d like to think that I am contributing to the documented history of what we have lost and may continue to lose; while quietly reminding us the importance of reverence, conservation and commitment.
