Where the Birds Used to Sing by Zoé Beausire contains twelve black & white photographs of birds, many of whom are caught in wire and unable to fly. The photobook employs an innovative format - a collection of 12 posters printed front and back that when flipped through as a traditional book, are sequenced to provide only half-page images sitting beside other half-page images. This sequencing makes us feel as though something is being kept from us. The result is fascinating, inviting viewers to disassemble and reassemble the book to create new configurations and sequences.
