Imagined flight

Imagined flight

Piece description from the artist

This snowy owl rests at the Berkshire Museum. It is full of life, despite its sad circumstances. I took this photograph using a special tool for lighting objects, kind of a fancy flashlight. I had to darken the area I was shooting so built a black tent around the museum case, and crawled under to make the long exposure. I like to imagine the bird taking flight right out of the case when it was given just the right light.
