Manchester Museum

It was suggested that I go to Manchester Museum to get more photos of stuffed birds, and therefore more resources to work from. Although it was interesting to see some different species of bird, the lighting at the museum made it difficult to get bright enough pictures to work with - I think that once cut out, some of these photos wont be crisp enough to be enlarged to a big enough scale. I did however find some great boxes of wings, perfect for transforming into collages to replicate my early work using the photos from books. I really liked these images below, particularly the stuffed heads (so macabre!) and the richness in the last two images - so many jewel-like colours to work with.
