Based in Sydney, Australia, Leila Jeffreys' photographic work and love of birds takes her around the world. In this book, she's captured the individual spirit of a vast array of avian creatures, artfully drawn out of the woodwork of forests and faraway skies where we normally glimpse them. She also profiles nearly every species shown in the back of Bird Love. Jeffreys works with animal rescue and conservation groups to create her portraits.
About Leila Jeffreys
Leila Jeffreys began documenting birds by way of photographic portraiture as a personal project in 2008, in order to portray birds in a way that displayed their incredible beauty and diversity, and to inspire a deeper concern for their well-being. Since then she has photographed hundreds of birds, and her work has been exhibited widely throughout Australia, the United States, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom.
