Eye-to-eye with Simon de Glanville’s pigeons


Pigeons create controversy among city dwellers whether they are being pilloried as “rats with wings” or celebrated as endlessly feedable feathered friends.

Through photographer Simon de Glanville‘s pictures, viewers come eye-to-eye with the creatures.

Over the past 10 years, De Glanville has taken pictures of pigeons, squirrels and dogs for a project entitled “London Wildlife”. His favourite locations for photographing urban wildlife include London’s Peckham, Brixton and Chinatown neighbourhoods.
