birdlife

birdlife with poetry and writing by Nyanda Smith, Nandi Chinna, Michael Farrell, Graeme Miles and photographs and drawings by Perdita Phillips

‘Both a playful lament for our lack of feathers, and an elegant celebration of common airs’ – Gregory Day, author of The Grand Hotel.

birdlife is a collaborative art and text book that explores the avian world…

Contemporary artist Perdita Phillips’ (Fremantle) photographs, doodles and sketches range from covert photography from within museums around the world, to tracking bowerbirds in the Kimberley.  Poets Michael Farrell (Melbourne), Graeme Miles (Hobart), Nandi Chinna (Fremantle) and writer Nyanda Smith (Perth)  cover subjects ranging from watching birdwatchers, politics, fatherhood, to having a haircut.
