With Captivated by Birds Ron Ridout explores his love of birds and presents us with a compilation of his very best images from the past few years. Each is a portrait of the subject in its natural environment providing us with an intimate view that we seldom experience.
In the 90 photographs within, Ron’s strong sense of design and colour lead the viewer to look at the commonplace in a new way and discover facets of these wondrous creatures that we may not have seen before.
Beginning with what is most familiar near his home at Long Point, Ontario, he then takes us on an expedition to Hudson Bay before leaving us with an array of 'exotic' species found on his explorations of the wild areas of Florida.
Through the text accompanying the photographs, Ron often lends some insight into his artistic process and provides the reader with a myriad of facts about the natural history of the subjects that are nearest his heart.
