This photobook is comprised of images from three related collections of photographs – Field Notes (2017 – 2021), The Augurs (2018) and Those Who Were Birds (2018 – 2021). The images in the book are recorded in a variety of locations – they are not specific to any one place or timeline. They are connected by virtue of being a series of observations in the field – a record of an obsessive need to look up and search for signs of presence.
