Douglas Lance Gibson’s latest series, AFTER THE BIRDS HAVE FLOWN, is a quintet of photographs that holds a subtly perverse premise; to depict a birdhouse in the moments immediately after the bird has flown the coop. Each image is numbered and titled pragmatically with the longitude and latitude, the species of bird that has departed, and the time the photo was taken. The birdhouse itself is built in a simple, austere style, hanging from a branch by a single rope. Whilst slight, the movement of the birdhouse is perceptible over the five frames, rotating enough to glimpse a subtle change in perspective, suggesting the delicate force that the bird has just exerted on the structure; or could it have been a gentle breeze?
