World-renowned photographer Rosamond Purcell captures the perfection of eggs and the diversity of bird nests with stunning images from her newest book Egg & Nest. Featuring images of specimens from the ornithological holdings of the Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology in California, the exhibition depicts the diverse beauty of eggs, and nests that demonstrate the ingenuity of the birds that build them.
Rosamond Purcell is the author of a number of books, including Owl’s Head and Bookworm. She collaborated with the late Harvard paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould on three books, including Crossing Over Where Art and Science Meet.
