Ghosts of Gone Birds

This photograph is of a book sculpture I created back in 2011 for Ceri Levy, founder of 'Ghost of Gone Birds' Collective.
 The aim of the collective is to raise awareness for bird conservation through a series of multimedia exhibitions that breathe artistic life back into extinct bird species.
The ornithological book I used, dates back to the early 1900's. 
I cut out all of the illustrations of birds, which are now either extinct or on the 'endagered' list. 
I like this photgraph (that I found on the web), as the birds around the edge of the lens appear ghostly transparent.
