The Gould Series is a contemporary take on the historic and iconic birdillustrators of the mid-19th century, particularly the English publisher, John Gould, and his immensely talented wife, the artist, Elizabeth Gould. I have explored the space between the hyperrealism high-resolution digital photography of the 21st Century and the idealism of the beautiful hand-drawn lithograph prints of the 19th Century. Each final piece consists of many individual digital photographs combined into a single image, in which I remove the bird from its natural environment and context and recast it in a field-guide style that harkens to the iconic bird prints of Gould.
Please click on any individual image to view all of the print sizes and framed print options.
If you would like a specially designed size, please contact me in the contact section and I will organise.
