An Vogelhausern Mangelt Es Jedoch Nicht.
Photographs by Luca Schenardi.
284 pp., color and black & white illustrations throughout, 8½x11½".
This publication marks the first time that specialized ornithological knowledge has been joined with subjective perception, bringing together drawings, digital illustrations, photography and splendid bird portraits. With his own subjective imagery and pictorial language, illustrator and artist Luca Schenardi links human impact to the decline of nature. Using birds as an indication of our materialistic way of life, the book demystifies and clearly demonstrates the present condition in Western Europe and beyond. Schenardi’s artistic expression is characterised by biting social criticism and cynicism mixed with offbeat humour and irony, yet avoids the prevalent cultural pessimism.
