Boston born Zack Seckler currently resides in New York. He studied psychology at Syracuse but has since discovered photography.
For this series of birds his vision was to create images as if a child had imagined the. Inspired by the aesthetics of John James Audubon and Henri Rousseau, he created a series of nine illustrative images.
Each photograph is comprised of multiple exposures shot both in and out of the studio; from locations as varied as Hawaii, Japan, Costa Rica and Bermuda. Over the course of two months, seventy-five individual images were selected out of thousands and then combined in post to create the final collection.
Zack said of the first time he saw animals in real life, “When I actually saw the animals in zoos it was nice – but they never lived up to what I saw in my books. Nothing beats imagination right”
