Never Hatched (2015)

These are photographs of the never-hatched eggs of the last golden eagle in England. The eggs, held in the collections of Tullie House, bear testimony to his failed attempts to procreate, to desire, hope and failure. Since having lost his mate, the bird continues to build nests of ever increasing size and performs the eagle’s sky dance in attempts to attract a new mate. Magnified on a scale of 1 to 300 the eggs begin to resemble planets, each bearing distinct characteristics different from the others.
