Item description for Jean Luc Mylayne by Jack Woody Terrie Sultan...
For more than thirty years, Jean Luc Mylayne has been photographing the birds of his native France. The creation of each image is a laborious process which can take months as Mylayne returns to the same location, day after day, waiting for his "actors", the birds, to play their parts before his lense. Mylayne asserts that the birds - he particularly focuses on bluebirds indigenous to Western Europe and the Western United States - are willing participants in the making of the picture. This is Jean Luc Mylayne's first book, and will accompany a U.S. exhibition.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jean Luc Mylayne?
A remarkable body of work and a core addition Feb 7, 2008
Enhanced with informed and informative essays by Terrie Sultan and Lynn Cooke, "Jean Luc Mylayne" is a large coffee-table book (twelve by thirteen inches, casebound) that showcases 104 full color plates of his photography. Published to accompany a traveling U.S. exhibition of the French photographer's work, each of this memorable and impressive images is fully representational of his painstaking work photographing birds in French landscapes and countryside environments. His particular focus is on bluebirds indigenous to Western Europe but also showcases the environments (including human habitations) where these lively little avians play out their lives. A remarkable body of work and a core addition to personal, professional, and academic library Photography collections, "Jean Luc Mylayne" will prove to be of immense interest to students of photography in general, and of wildlife photographers in particular.
