Søren Solkær: Starling


Søren Solkær: Starling

New photographs from Solkær’s internationally acclaimed series on the natural migration patterns of starlings

A sequel to Søren Solkær’s previous monograph Black Sun, Starling chronicles the photographer’s return to the landscape of his childhood and youth in southern Denmark. In a similar manner to prior projects, he spent three years following and photographing the migration of the starling: from Ireland to Denmark and the Netherlands along the Wadden Sea and on to Sardinia and Rome. The starlings move as one unified organism that vigorously opposes any outside threat. Shapes and black lines of condensation form within the swarm, resembling waves of interference or mathematical abstractions written across the horizon. The graphic and organic shapes of the starling murmurations range from meditative to highly dramatic as they perform their incredible ballet of life and death. This time, Solkær approaches the phenomenon from a mythological and scientific angle. These new perspectives capture the birds’ movements against backgrounds such as Roman urban architecture. Additionally, Solkær creates two new series of photographs featuring starling feathers photographed through a microscope.

Mesmerizing new starling migration photographs from Søren Solkær

Mesmerizing new starling migration photographs from Søren Solkær

Best known for his iconic, cinematic portraits of musicians including Björk, Amy Winehouse, Pharrell Williams and Patti Smith, for the past seven years Danish photographer Søren Solkær has been quietly documenting the mysterious natural aerial phenomenon of the annual starling migration from Ireland through Denmark, the Netherlands and Italy. His first book, Black Sun, collecting 176 hypnotic, almost abstract, color photographs of the starling migration’s patterns and shapes, became an international cult collectible photobook when it released in 2020. His equally mesmerizing follow-up, Starling, is out now from Edition Circle, collecting new photographs made over the last three years. Recent perspectives capture the birds’ murmurations against backgrounds such as Roman urban architecture, while two new series zoom in on feathers photographed through a microscope. continue to blog
