Where are the birds? Retracing Audubon: Artwork by Krista Elrick
Where are the birds? Retracing Audubon: Artwork by Krista Elrick is an exhibition and book project reexamining John James Audubon’s epic life journey and the production of his beloved tome, The Birds of America. While the name of Audubon is familiar and the drawings he created are still wildly popular, his eloquent writings are less well known. Where are the birds? Retracing Audubon features contemporary photographs made by Krista Elrick of the American landscapes in which Audubon traveled 200 years ago. Also included are quotes from Audubon’s journals and entries Elrick made in her own travel notebooks two centuries later.
