“Yet it can happen, suddenly, unexpectedly, and most frequently in the half-light-of-glimpses, that we catch sight of another visible order which intersects with ours and has nothing to do with it.[…] We come upon a part of the visible which wasn’t destined for us. Perhaps it was destined for night-birds, reindeer, ferrets, eels, whales…” John Berger

Tristan is a bird educator, he prepares birds for theatre and cinema and develops their positive contact with humans in “ornitotherapy”. As a child, in the forest behind his parent’s house he realized that, while remaining still for a long time, the animals came out of the vegetation. The approach in respect of the rhythm of the other, remains the basis of Tristan’s method. His technique is based on the understanding of bird’s sensibility, that is more extensive than ours, moving to areas we have partly forgotten in the course of evolution. Body position, intensity of the look or even the intentions that animate us, have for birds a great deal of importance. Following Tristan, we can enter their world made of minimal, subtle and incorporeal events.

Francesca Todde is a documentary photographer based in Milan and working between Italy and France. Her research focuses on cultural issues related to nature and human relationship with animals. In 2018 she founded the imprint
