Ghosts of Gone Birds
Posted: December 3, 2011
I’ve just got round to sorting out some photos I’ve taken recently and uploaded my photos of the Ghosts of Gone Birds exhibition to Flickr.
The Ghosts of Gone Birds is a project to “raise a creative army for conservation” — highlighting extinct species of birds and raising awareness of current conservation issues — via exhibitions and events. All of the proceeds go towards the work of Birdlife International.
I went along to a night of poetry and music at Rich Mix London (featuring amongst others the damn fine experimental folkies Walking with Ghosts) and also got to the exhibition just round the corner, at the Rochelle School in Shoreditch. This ran over a couple of floors and featured installations and paintings from a number of artists, including Ralph Steadman.
There were various notices around in the exhibition positively encouraging the taking and sharing of photos — a nice touch I thought.
No comments? The comments haven't exactly been coming thick and fast recently so I've disabled them for the time being. Instead, why not drop me a Tweet at @littlednet or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org?
