Portrait series of captive birds


This is a portrait series of abandoned tropical birds living in sanctuaries. The idea of the series is to tell the story of each bird. When we see a portrait of a person we recognize the emotions. We can't do that with birds. So I decided to add the stories next to the portrait to help people understand what the birds are going through. The goal of the project is to help stop illegal poaching and keep the wild birds in the wild. This beautiful creatures are not supposed to be pets.
