  • Description:
    Richard Barnes: Richard Barnes made black and white, grainy photographs of starling flocks – known as a murmur – over two years in a Roman suburb called EUR. EUR was planned by Mussolini as a town to showcase fascist architecture, and the starkness of the photos also has, in a sense, a fascist sensibility to it. The images look so dark, so threatening and unnatural that it seems completely incomprehensible that it’s just starlings – the bird of poetry, not storm! Regardless, it’s a striking collection of photos and like Balog’s work, also has scientific use, as well.
