Paula McCartney

Bird Watching (2003-2008)

Any time that Paula McCartney walks in the woods she has an eye for the birds. But she never tried to capture them with her camera: the birds were too far away and too flighty in their movements to arrive at a satisfactory composition. She solved that problem in BIRD WATCHING by placing handmade songbirds in the landscape and photographing these ‘upgraded’ landscapes. The birds are like jewels that enrich the landscape, even as the landscape gives added value to the birds.

  • Long-tailed Waxbill



Paula McCartney (United States, 1971) took her Masters in photography at the San Francisco Art Institute. She had previously studied photography at Empire State College and the International Center of Photography in New York. Her work is primarily concerned with the fields of landscape and ornithology.
