They are a marvel of nature, though often overlooked – broken on the ground, hidden in a nest, or sitting in a fridge. Bird eggs appear simple, but have evolved their identifying characteristics to suit their particular environment. The images in this series were photographed from various specimens in the collection of the Museum of Natural History. Zoologist and wildlife photographer Dr Damian Lidgard reveals the true beauty and uniqueness of bird eggs as simple objects. His photographs celebrate these oval wonders through shape, pattern and colour.
Images are printed on a German fine art paper (Hahnemühle) with Epson UltraChrome pigment inks, providing outstanding colour and texture. Each print is numbered, signed and has a Certificate of Authenticity. Matted prints are presented in a white archival double mat with an archival foamcore backing. Archival materials are acid-free and help prolong the life of the print. Each piece is signed in pencil by the artist.
