Goldfinch in flight
The Goldfinch is native to Europe, North Africa and western and central Asia. It is often depicted in Italian Renaissance paintings of Madonna and Child.
Mark Harvey is renowned for his carefully crafted lighting and detailed animal studies. His style lends a dramatic, almost sculpture-like stillness to his subjects.
His Garden Flights series captures these magnificent birds both in the dramatic aerial acrobatics of their flight and in more quiet contemplative studies. Harvey uses a medium format Hasselblad camera – a camera brand developed by Victor Hasselblad in the 1960s, to optimise his own bird photography endeavours.
The medium format approach and hi-speed flash synchronisation creates images of phenomenal detail and clarity even at the largest sizes.
