These are wild birds. I don’t capture them for the purpose of photography. Most of the photos are taken at bird bandings in which case they have been netted for scientific study. To learn more about bird bandings, click here. They get their picture taken while they are returning to their habitat.
About pattern designer Krista Stack: Perhaps it was the gene pool. Daughter of a museum textile curator, Krista Stack began her lifelong interest in textiles when she started weaving at the age of two. After completing a history degree at Brown University, she attended classes — and won awards — in the textile department of the Rhode Island School of Design. She later worked for mills in Turkey and India, and as director of design for innovative weaver and designer Jack Lenor Larsen. In 2005, she started her own business, Krista Stack Design, working with both editors and mills around the world. She also creates custom carpets in India and fine art pieces in her Brooklyn studio.

Says Krista: “I have been thrilled to work with Wild Birds Flying on the transformation of Paul Nelson’s photographs into textile patterns, perhaps isolating and repeating a single wing or feather to create a new configuration that invites one to reach into the illusion. These are rich surfaces with ancient origins evolved into contemporary glamour.”
