Ornithology from Cartography by Jason LaFerrera


Jason LaFerra finds the textures and contours of old maps are fascinating, even the tattered and stained parts. In this series, he digitally manipulates cartographic materials to create fauna, mostly birds, in poses reminiscent of field guides from a similarly early era of publication.

The patterns of forests and shores often become an animal’s feathers or fur, while the rings of topography often trace out wings or antlers.
