Richard Barnes’ recent photographic pursuits centre around natural history. Developed during his fellowship at the American Academy in Rome in 2006, Murmur explores the bizarre and fantastic effects of swarms of starlings flying over the city. This series, which became part of the monograph Animal Logic, published in 2009, follows thousands of starlings as they fly above Rome and its suburbs in the fall and winter.
