About Des Oiseaux

Created in the space of her personal garden in Washington DC, Terri Weifenbach’s photographs reveal the secret world of nature populated by birds that nest in urban gardens. Her images oscillate between fantasy and reality, seemingly taken on the sly when birds race at top speed, dance, or settle, freeze, and gather in parliaments. Seasons follow in succession, where the colours of the garden vary. Saturated light and colour plays on blurred and crystal-clear details. These freeze frames depict a “supra-reality”. Terri Weifenbach immerses us in the infinitely small, yet particularly lively and marvelous world. As a result, this publication is part of the Des oiseaux (On birds) collection celebrating, through the vision of different artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now vulnerable. Accompanying these photographs, the ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre writes a special essay. For this title, he sheds light on the adaptation of birds in urban environments.
