About Whistling for Owls

Whistling for Owls by Max Ferguson is a story of two parts; image and text; France and London, memoir and fiction; truth and lies. This is the first book by the Oval press imprint which will focus on quiet publishing on the edges of photography, literature and research.

In Whistling for Owls, oblique photographs and sometimes-poetic texts are combined create a loose narrative of love, loss and longing. The photographs depict observed details and imperfections of both domesticity and naturean apple core on the ground, a broken window, a cluttered kitchen and carefully arranged dead butterflies.
