Love versus Like a Lot

Anita Klein - The Cockatoo

Anita Klein – The Cockatoo, 2008

Anita Klein makes pictures of ordinary life with tiny details that transform them into something beyond. This one is of a woman offering bird-seed to a cockatoo. She’s in a safe place but the bird is from the wild. She must like it a lot to feed it from her own hand.

But she’s not looking. It’s not an act of desire but of ego-less hope, in the dark. And, as a result, paradise, in the form of a slightly comical cockatoo, comes to her.
