I recently discovered Bird, the latest in project from photographer Andrew Zuckerman. The hyperrealistic images highlight the beauty and vibrancy of these creatures in a way you’d never be able to see in person. As Massimo Vignelli writes in the introduction, “The birds, from the intimacy of the very small to the majesty of the very large, acquire a transcendental dignity, each one becoming a god in its own universe.”

Take a look at more images from the book as well as behind-the-scenes videos right here, or pick up a copy for yourself on Amazon.
