Festival of political photography 2021: Bird's Eye View
What if a crow could take photographs? What kinds of photos would it take? What would the world look like through the eyes of a bird?
Opening in October 2021, the title of the fifth Festival of Political Photography is ‘Bird’s-Eye View’. The festival reflects, through photography, on the capacity of humans to imagine the perspective of birds and to understand the world in an alternate way through that lens.
If a crow took up photography, could it document species loss or would it take pictures of piles
of waste? Could the wise bird use photographs to show humans how to also look at the world from the viewpoint of species other than our own?
