‘In Flight’ - is a new limited-edition print collection featuring detailed studies of everyday free-flying British birds, captured in photography as they go about their everyday lives.
This new collection features breath-taking studies of eight different species of some of Britain’s most common birds, which we all know - yet rarely notice. Photographed in the Norfolk Broads during lockdown earlier this year, the collection includes magpies, blue tits, starlings, goldfinches, great tits, coal tits, long-tailed tits, and green finches.
Internationally acclaimed animal photographer Mark Harvey, recognised as one of the UK’s leading practitioners in equine fine art photography, announces the release of his new limited-edition collection, ‘In Flight'.
Renowned for his carefully crafted lighting and detailed animal studies, whose trademark style lends a dramatic, almost sculpture-like stillness to his subjects, for this new collection Harvey has taken an unconventional photographic approach.
Similar in grace to aerial acrobats, all of the British birds were captured in mid-flight using medium format with a Hasselblad camera - the very camera brand that was first manufactured by devoted birdwatcher Victor Hasselblad in the 1960s, to optimise his bird photography endeavours.
