PORTRAIT

SHORT LIST

Statement

Black Portrait

For people living in cities,
it would be no exaggeration to say that crows are the most familiar form of wildlife.

The sheer density of crows in cities would be impossible under natural conditions.

One factor behind this is the way people leave refuse on the street,affording the crows sufficient sustenance for their lives.

Despite this growth in the crow population, a direct corollary of people's activities,people treat the crows as pests.

Yet the crows staunchly observe people going about their day, electing to live not in the forest or mountains, but prevail in the city.

Their gaze is indomitable and resolute.

This place is not one for humans alone, after all,I find myself thinking.
