sølve sundsbø: perroquet.

Inspired by nature documentaries and science photography, fashion photographer Sølve Sundsbø created “Parroquet”, a series of photographs and short videos exploring the sleek, mutli-hued avian beauty of the parroquet, a type of long-tailed parrot. Presented by SHOWStudio, the pictures are stunningly beautiful. Interesting how nature and evolution have created a palette of colour as gorgeous as, arguably more gorgeous than, any art created by human hands.

The only thing more beautiful that the photographs are the eight videos; little slow-motion epics of the perroquets in flight. The colours are so deep and brilliant it’s almost hard to believe that they’re only feathers.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
