Cally Whitham: Photography

Often it is Attenborough who brings me mesmerising beauty of nature and animals that inspires me to see things differently. This time it is Cally Whitham recreating uncanny resemblances of birds. The portraits are incredibly realistic and freakishly bare some human resemblance, too. Its in the eyes. Even the side shots when only one eye is captured. Arguably, the owl is most striking - the vignette delicately framing its neat feathers and posture allows its features to be illuminated and gives hints into this ones personality.
