Rookery
Tim Edgar
United Kingdom, 2002

Rookery contains ten photographs exploring the unsettling locations of Rookeries in southern Dorset, England. The birds are absent, what remains are signs of ritualistic behavior. The natural structures and detritus highlighted by electronic flash signify the skeletal bird. Rookery sits outside the tradition of natural history representation, revealing the darker side of the romantic landscape.

About sense of place in artist books

I am an artist. I find the ephemeral place in my art conjured up through practice. I sift through raw materials with my hopes and dreams, and ideas take form as if intended.
