 “Color, Form and Feathers” is the result of my turning the camera on just a few of the many bird species found in Eastern North America, specifically in the state of New York.  All but one of the eleven images in this photographic series were taken in northern Manhattan’s Inwood Hill Park.  As I became something of a bird-watcher through the camera lens I learned to appreciate the stillness within me and around me necessary to capture images of wildlife.  And while these birds are, for the most part, quite recognizable, I believe the photographs help illustrate the notion that—when it comes to living creatures—there is no such thing as ‘ordinary’.

Marge Doherty is a New York-based photographer whose work was first exhibited in 2008 as part of Artists Alliance Inc.’s Works on Paper exhibition at the Cuchifritos gallery/project space. She followed that with group shows at the Fresh Fruit Festival’s 2009 Passion: Lesbian Visions and 2010 Crossing Boundaries exhibitions at Leslie-Lohman Gallery.  She participated in the 2010 and 2011 HK: Artist Studio Tours’ Artists in the Kitchen festivals as well as 2010’s Exhibition ONE: Zero Gravity show at NYC’s Lolita Bar.  Doherty works in digital, 35mm and film-based stereo photography exploring such themes as isolationism, color in nature, and hyper-real imagery.  Her 3D stereo slide photographs have been projected at the American Museum of Natural History and she is a member of the New York Stereoscopic Society and the International Women Artists’ Salon.  Doherty is also a guitarist and singer/songwriter, having performed solo shows in New York and Los Angeles, as well as a video and television producer/director.  She has produced programming for VH1, The Food Network, A&E, Animal Planet, The Travel Channel and The Sundance Channel, among others.
