Digital photographs of flamingo yard-animals as a call to action.
Climate change continues to alter coastal environments, and migratory birds are
under constant threat of extinction. While flamingos are not endangered at
present, their unique shallow-water feeding habit makes them vulnerable.
However, unlike other bird species, an indestructible replacement already exists
for flamingos - pink, plastic yard-animals. Ironically, there are more plastic
flamingos today than live flamingos.

"And Then, There Were None" asserts that, in the future, plastic
flamingos will be a source of inspiration for generations who will never see a live
flamingo. Here, the plastic figures are represented without the usual "kitschy"
overtones. The future flamingo images are respectfully presented as intimate,
stylish, energized, powerful, and loving.
