Art Edit presents a curated selection of artists whose work is inspired by nature.
The birds depicted in the work of Angela Robertson-Buchanon are almost hyper-real, sitting confidently at the forefront of their settings. The UK-educated, Sydney-based photographer uses a macro lens and a shallow depth of field – requiring meticulous focus and extreme proximity to her subjects – to give her photographic portraits and intricate montages a three-dimensional feel.
Underneath the beauty and technical prowess of these image lies a deeper concern for wildlife conservation. When not practicing photography, Angela works as a carer for rescue birds. A percentage of her art sales is also donated to wildlife organisations.
