Silent Nests
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


For centuries, raising pigeons and doves was a symbol of status and privilege granted to the aristocracy. There used to be over 40,000 dovecotes in France, but now only 1000 remain. Topaz depicts these buildings in enigmatic b/w photographs and presents the first known documentation of this cultural legacy. With its careful telling details and subtle play of light captured by the camera, Silent Nests presents a unique, sophisticated and haunting visual experience.
