Seagulls in the city: Sydney from a bird’s perspective

Unwelcome like no other birds, seagulls are part of our city. The photographs are attempting to capture the close relationship between birds and humans and the way they integrate in our city, displaying the beauty of these amazing flying creatures like never before.

A lot of articles have recently highlighted the aggressive nature of these birds, the main culprit being humans feeding them. Is it really the gulls fault to be located near populated areas with no other place to go than near us?

The complexity comes as they are protected in Sydney, not always welcome, but not deterred by us.

A display of large scale photography and intriguing postures captured over several years, creating a dialogue of two worlds in the middle of the city.

After all, seagulls are the first resident of Sydney!

Everyday until the 14 May from 12pm to 6pm.

51 William St, Darlinghurst NSW 2010, Australia
