These images are my attempt at a sensitive understatement of reality; the lifeless bird complements the fullness of the natural panorama. This is not a depiction of beauty, but there is neither morbidity nor exaggeration, the colours are muted.
The photographs are about witnessing in silence, the bush (Australian term for outskirts, nature, forest) as a whole living being, breathing, consuming and reusing. Both life and death are part of the cycle of nature, of the ecological system. The solorised green colour of the lush foliage lingers on the stilled life of the bird and while death silences one life millions of others continue unaware.
