“Murmuration” was commissioned by Photoworks for the Brighton Photo Biennial 2010: New Documents 2010, curated by Martin Parr.
During the winter months at dusk, the birds gather in tens of thousands, wheeling around to create a mesmerizing cloud called a murmuration. In addition to documenting the literal patterns of the starlings along the coast, which is the first part of the book, Rinko Kawauchi was using murmuration as her guiding inspiration. In the second part she also captured the metaphorical motion of flocking during explorations of Brighton’s urban environment.
