The Grady Alexis Gallery at El Taller Latino Americano is pleased to present
BIRDS, photographs by Fernand Brunschwig.
The reception is free and open to the public on Wednesday
February 14, 2018 from 6pm-8pm. The images are on view until March 8, 2018.
Brunschwig has traveled broadly and this collection shows a wide array of birds in their natural environs. He
says that “birds are both beautiful and interesting” and this group of images conveys this. One can observe
singular and paired birds in a variety of activities, from care to competition. The best among them are the
ones that transcend the frame and refer to art history, emotion, and flight itself. In these images we find
ourselves recovering breath, discovering balance in the air, even soaring. Taking the lead from our winged
models, for just a moment, we can “see” from above. It inspires one to remember that there are different
points of view. And this is exactly what we turn to art for: to have us remember our fellow beings without
Fernand Brunschwig moved to New York City with his family in 1980. His early passion for photography
converged with walks in the Central Park, which turned out to be “a world-class birding hot-spot,” especially
in the spring and fall migrations.
