This is a selection of ten images depicting birds in migration. I first captured them in different locations on camera before downloading them onto my computer and setting to work on a more creative feel. Although I had the idea for this a while back, Coronavirus rules limiting our own movementhave made me realize how fortunate we are that we can be as free as the birds in normal times to move when and where-ever we are able.

Born in the UK and lived in Israel. In 2000 I joined the Tel Aviv Camera Club, culminating in 4 solo exhibitions and 5 TACC group exhibitions. During 2003 to 2004, Michael helped set up of Ventures Group of Song-writers, Poets, Artists and Photographers which was a group that mixed artistic outputs for various products and became the group Publicity Secretary. In 2005, I returned to London and joined the Isle of Wight Photographic Society and the Hampstead Photographic Society serving on the HPS committee. My work is either documentary or artistic depending on where I am exhibiting
