The Day the Birds stopped Singing is a poetical photobook about the feeling of anger, uncertainty and incomprehension of growing up in a dying world. Through flashed-in black and white photographs of young adults, city birds and the local parks I am creating visual metaphors that convey this liminal feeling we experience in a time where we leave behind the comforts of childhood and face the consequences of adulthood. What do we have our wings for if there is nowhere to land?
