Mike keeps pigeons on the roof of an abandoned burned-out building in New York. Every morning he lets them out of their coop, and they fly around in the sky until he calls them back home for breakfast. But one morning, a white pigeon, Light, flies away. His journey takes him across the city, and onto a subway train, where he is rescued by a young boy. This simple, moving story is presented in strikingly original collage constructions made from natural materials, fabric, clothes and hair.show more
