Alain Delorme’s Murmurations Of Birds That Are Actually Plastic Bags

At first glance these pictures look like swarms of starlings gathering at dusk. But Parisian photographer Alain Delorme actually created these images from photographs of plastic bags meticulously arranged to replicate flocks of birds.

The work entitled Murmurations is an examination of the problems caused by discarded plastic bags and took a year and a half to complete.

“I have always found plastic bags across my path, no matter where I travelled in the world,” Alain says. “This plastic bag could be anywhere — even hanging on a tree. I thought that it had to fly to land there.”
