Naturally Artful | Beautiful Photography by Thomas Lohr
This week, we’re pleased to highlight the new 2015 book Birdsby German photographer Thomas Lohr which showcases birds in their naturally artful state. In Birds, Lohr focuses his lens on the details that make bird feathers around the world so unique. Spotlighting seldom considered spots like where feather meets fold or where wing meets body, Lohr captures not only the beauty of feathers, but also their inherent grace and functionality.
Seeing birds of different colors, stripes, and sizes can be an everyday experience depending on what part of the world you live. Even when you can’t see them, their birdsong is there to let you know that they are there, perched on a branch or windowsill somewhere just outside your view. Birds flaunt their elegant and beautiful feathers with abandon, and they don’t need your approval for any of it!
Those of us living in a city like New York have the privilege of being among flocks of birds everyday. Yes, they are just pigeons, and yes, their wanton pigeon waddle can be a source of great frustration when you’re trying to catch the train that will surely get you to work on time. Whatever your opinion of our feathered friends, including dopey pigeons, if you take just a moment to consider their feathery layers, you’ll find it hard to deny them their natural beauty.

“Pepsi reinvents the popular Japanese folktale of Momotaro (aka Peach Boy) in this series of commercials, featuring a host of fantastic costume designs, CG and cinematography…”
The accompanying text of Ep. Zero written in Japanese translates to this backstory…
“Long, long ago, a legion of oni (demons) invaded a village. They were far too powerful, and the villagers could do nothing to stand against them…Hearing news of their plight, Momotaro enlisted the help of a dog, a monkey, and a pheasant, and set out for the Onigashima Island, the monsters’ home…”
