The Parrish Art Museum will exhibit a permanent collection installation of the photography of Jean-Luc Mylayne, now through October 30, 2016.

These five pictures, captured in Bernal, New Mexico, in 2004 and Fort Davis, Texas, in 2005, illuminate the artist’s understanding of and appreciation for birds in their natural surroundings. Through a keen attention to detail and an inventive array of overlapping lenses he uses to manipulate the depth of field and focal point of each composition, Mylayne creates an almost cinematic narrative. With the patience and precision of a film director, he exactly composes each work, deliberately pinpointing a location, the ideal subject, and the appropriate scale. As a result, viewers enter environments that seem familiar yet are outside the traditional nature of photography.

Throughout his career, Mylayne has explored the intimate bond between subject and photographer through a non-traditional combination of visionary inventiveness and infinite patience. His photographic subjects—ordinary birds such as sparrows, starlings, and bluebirds—contradict the uncommon experience depicted in his photographs. These are not images quickly captured “on the fly” or from a distance with a telephoto lens. Rather, they are the result of days, weeks, sometimes months or years of waiting for the perfect alignment of light, subject, and lenses before capturing his target.
