Dying Birds.

Dying Birds. Photographs by Nicolai Howalt & Trine Søndergaard. Hassla Books, 2010. 32 pp., black & white images, 6½x9½". Images from photo-eye.

'Dying Birds' is a "photographic study of the forms of hunted birds" - a book by photographers Trine Søndergaard and Nicolai Howalt expanding on their previous project 'How to Hunt'.

"In this series of images the artists have captured birds in their struggle to live whilst being hunted, and ultimately in their final earthbound moments."

This is quite a cruel project really that doesn't sit comfortably with me, but I'm very interested in the questions and feelings it rises. And the undeniable beauty of the birds' final demise.

Both quotes from here.
