From a flamboyant flamingo to a crested cockatoo, one photographer presents some of the world’s most brilliant birds in a dazzling new book.

London-based photographer Tim Flack, an honorary member of the Royal Photographic Society, travels the world photographing animals and has drawn his attention to our feathered friends for his latest title, Birds, published by Abrams Books.

Flack said, “When I started this project, it was my intention to explore the beauty and wonder of birds by depicting them in a series of portraits, abstract and in flight.

“For many of us, the global pandemic has raised our awareness of nature and especially of the birds, the very presence of which has awakened our senses and lifted our spirits.

“The forced loneliness of the lockdown also gave me the opportunity to reflect on my photographic processes and gain new inspiration from old masters like Rembrandt and Turner.

‘I I hope this book continues to show how extraordinary they really are, while at the same time instilling empathy and stimulating protection and support. Connecting people with nature has never been more important. ‘
