Black Sun

| /

BLACK SUN is a project by acclaimed photographer Søren Solkær capturing one of nature’s most spectacular phenomena; the large murmurations of starlings. The countless birds puts on an incredible show of collaboration and performance skills twice a year when they gather prior to their migration. Growing up in Southern Denmark, where this breathtaking scenery unfolds, Søren always had a fascination for the starlings that naturally lead him to a deep investigation.

“The starlings move as one unified organism that vigorously opposes any outside threat. A strong visual expression is created – like that of an ink drawing or a calligraphic brush stroke – asserting itself against the sky. Shapes and black lines of condensation form within the swarm, resembling waves of interference or mathematical abstractions written across the
horizon. This is the moment I have attempted to capture – a slice of eternity.” – Søren Solkær
