18 November - 4 April 2011. For over 30 years French photographer Jean-Luc Mylayne has been capturing large-scale colour images of birds.
Mylayne's work method involves the meticulous and time-consuming process of first locating a suitable scene, returning to the same location day after day, sometimes for months, and waiting for a bird to land in just the right place, ensuring a perfect composition is achieved naturally.
Describing the birds as actors, Mylayne tends to focus on birds indigenous to western Europe and the western United States, and always photographs them in their natural habitat. This is his first exhibition in Spain.
