Publisher's Description

This first monograph by Japanese photographer Yohei Kichiraku was inspired when he found an old bird atlas at a flea market. Leafing through the book, he discovered that a bird had been cut out of one of its pages. The thought occurred to him that its absence must mean the bird had taken flight, so Kichiraku proceeded to release the other birds in the atlas by cutting the illustrations out and returning them to the forest. There he photographed them in their natural habitat, perched on branches or flowers, half hidden among leaves. Designed to resemble the atlas from which they were freed, Birds invites us to encounter these avian creatures as we might in the wild.
