Photograph. A bald eagle in flight, wings downswept, beak opened in anticipation.
Martin Klimas.

The photographs of birds of prey are selfies in the broadest sense. As soon as they have taken flight, the birds pass through a light beam sensor, effectively snapping their own pictures. Klimas shows them in a perfect paradox: although these images are captured at the moment of ultimate physical tension, the subjects appear strangely still and lifeless against the stark, grey background.
