Night Vision

Story of the ImageThis composite image started off as three images: a wild swarm of birds in flight in Kalamazoo Michigan, a desolate stretch of glacier, and the Panamint Mountains in Death Valley. By using digital blending techniques, I created a surreal world with hints of landforms and vegetation as the birds careen through the dark sky.

The “view portal” that frames the image is a photograph of an industrial window in a renovated factory in the Chelsea area of NYC. The window provides a gateway into fanciful realms where you can explore worlds familiar and unknown, the world as is and the world reimagined.
