500 million birds of different sorts and species stopover at the Hula Valley, in northern Israel, on their flights between Europe and Africa. The main migrating season is in the fall, when pelicans, herons, storks, and cranes arrive in huge flocks, along with birds of prey and other winged species. About 35,000 cranes arrive in the autumn months, and about 15,000 of them stay for the winter.
However, for me, it is the individuals that are more interesting: documenting their struggle, the loneliness that comes with such a dangerous trip and the triumph of paving their own path.
Each print comes with a hand signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
Each certificate is printed on a branded Hahnemühle watermarked paper. The paper has deckled edges with UV-Security fibers and is comprised of two hologram stickers with unique serial numbers - one goes on the certificate and the other on the back of the print.
Each print also includes an outer white border, with the image name, copy number, and a printed signature.

Giclée and C-type Printing:
C-type prints are printed using a laser process and produce a high-resolution image with great color depth. Giclée prints are printed using an ink jet process on a wide range of papers suitable for fine art prints. The Giclée process offers less color depth than C-type prints, however, the texture of the paper gives the print a fine art appearance. Each Giclée fine art print is produced under careful supervision and to the highest standard.
