Leila Jeffreys @ Purdy Hicks Gallery

12 July 2018 - 2 September 2018

An exhibition of photographs by Australian artist Leila Jeffreys. Her new series is dedicated to the modest Pigeons species, Ornithurae. 
Comprising over fifteen new portraits of rarely seen and unique breeds of pigeons, each of startling grace and elegance, Ornithurae challenges the often unfavourable appreciation of this particular bird.
Jeffreys continues to reconstruct our perceptions of birds by pairing up two different bird families: the universally loved cockatoo with the columbine (pigeons and doves). While the cockatoo is viewed as an iconic Australasian bird – the pigeon is almost universally ignored.
