Behind the Feathers: Pigeon Portraits by Andrew Garn

Published Jul 19, 2018

American photographer Andrew Garn spent the past eight years capturing portraits of pigeons in New York city, from his unique perspective. The collection of images are now compiled in his book The New York Pigeon: Behind the Feathers.

“Published by powerHouse Books, the series seeks to change the public perception of the humble pigeon—a bird that’s often unkindly nicknamed ‘stool pigeon’ or dismissed as a ‘rat with wings.’ It raises the question, ‘What did pigeons ever do to deserve such disrespect?’ The publishers proudly announce, ‘With this book, the beautiful, savvy, graceful, kind pigeon will be invisible no more.’ And just like a fashion magazine, Garn too has his star ‘cover boy’ — a purple-breasted bird named Dr. Brown, who is shown ‘flexing his wings and massive chest muscles, in an interpretive homage to a Kabuki dancer’.”
