This year I’d like to start experimenting more with different styles of photography. This is the first set of photos I hope to do this year playing with double exposures and blending photos together. I chose pigeons for this project just because they are everywhere and also I’ve been paying more attention to them lately. On a podcast recently I heard that the reason some pigeons are missing toes or even their feet is that hair or string gets wrapped around them and they eventually die and fall off. This got me noticing the birds a lot more as a walk around the city and I’ve started to enjoy watching them. I don’t really see them as just a dirty menace anymore. When you are in the mountains the pigeons are actually pretty birds, and much cleaner. It’s only the ones in the city that are filthy, and that’s because they are living around the filth we make.
This series is an idea I had one day and decided to make. Like the City Birds set before, I want to experiment more with different ideas. I took photos of buses and octopus tanks around Sinchon, Jongno, and Myeong-dong.
This is the first in a series of vehicle images I’m planning. I designed the patterns in Illustrator and added them to the buses in Photoshop.
