Publisher's Description
“The buzz word is swarm intelligence, which has acquired an unforeseen reality in the era of Facebook and Twitter. The behavior of a collective without a center has become a social phenomenon. (.. .) Lukas Felzmann invites us to read the symbol of birds as aesthetic figures, as a language of the unconscious.” (Peter Pfrunder in his contribution to the book)

Swarm is an extensive series on the flock movements of migrating birds. His breathtaking photographs offer a unique view of the beauty but also the complexity and diversity of shape variations. This aerial ballet has a rhythm of upward explosion and downward fall to rest. Sometimes the forms would explode, blooming like plants or fireworks. At other times they seemed more stable, slowly drifting like constellations of negative stars. Swarm looks up into the sky and follows flight through the dynamic landscape of air currents.
