‚??Fossil and genetic evidence tell us that birds and humans have not shared a¬†common ancestor for more than 300 million years. In Birdland, Leila Jeffreys‚?? intimate¬†bird portraits close that gap by showing us that birds have minds not entirely unlike ours.¬†We need artists who can remind us that nature is powerful and important and that it¬†deserves our attention and affection.‚?Ě
Tim Low, author of Where Song Began

In Birdland, Australian fine-art photographer Leila Jeffreys presents us with a bird-watching experience like no other, drawing birds out from their leafy shadows and airy territories and presenting them to us with the skill and intricate detail of a portrait painter. The result is a stunning encounter with some of the world‚??s most beautiful birds.

Captured in a moment of stillness, Jeffreys‚?? feathered sitters reveal qualities and features that invite human projection.

Sydney-based Jeffreys works with animal rescue and conservation groups to create her portraits. Her love and compassion for her subjects is evident throughout, and every bird has a story, which Jeffreys shares in a profile of nearly every species in the back of the book.

Birdland invites us to rediscover birds, to gaze unhindered, and to marvel at their many-splendored glory.

The¬†Australian / New Zealand¬†edition features her exhibited Budgerigar series, Cockatoo series and Birds of Prey series with additional portraits including Sirocco, New Zealand‚??s kakapo conversation superstar.
