Frozen moments of a bird in flight: Sølve Sundsbø

“Perroquet” is the high-speed photography series by renowned Swedish fashion photographer Sølve Sundsbø. Inspired by his lifelong fascination with nature documentaries and science photography, these images manage to capture the frozen moment of a parrot in mid flight within a controlled studio environment.

The strikingly saturated, tropical hues make for sweet eye candy. Cropped features give an abstract quality to the central focus – the bird’s trademark plumage. A nuanced study of motion and vibrant colors, “Perroquet” proved Sundsbø’s talents while venturing outside his usual glossy editorials.

British alternative band Friendly Fires later adopted these images for the artwork of their critically acclaimed 2011 album “Pala”.
