Poetry in the Sky

Nature as a work of art: birds in their natural habitat spectacularly staged

The award-winning "Winged Prism" photo series for the first time in an illustrated book

Brilliant, unedited photographs celebrate the uniqueness of the moment

From the winner of numerous awards, including "Nature Photographer of the Year 2021", "Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2021 - Highly Commended", "Tokyo Photo Awards 2020", etc.

"The camera is my brush" is how Christian Spencer describes his style. He shows the poetry of nature in his photographs and lets its beauty speak for itself. Therefore, he does without any image editing. In this way, he captures the originality of the moment and the specialness of the birds. The hummingbirds dance like feathered rainbows in front of his lens. The bird world unfolds in all its colourfulness and elegance: in reflections on the water, between blossoms and trees and in the sunlight high above the treetops.

Content/structure:
1. winged prims - hummingbirds rainbows
2. jewelled armor - hummingbirds portraits
3. poems written in the sky - birds in flight
