With A Sensitive Education the photographer Francesca Todde explores, through the figure of bird educator Tristan Plot, the possibilities of empathy between different natural species.
The narrative, far from being a naturalist documentation, is rather focused on the emotional sphere and sensitivity of birds and humans. The photographic research develops in resonance with the delicacy of this wordless dialogue.
“A sensitive education is by no means a demonstration, but a strong poetic perception of the co-partnership of man and the animal kingdom.”
Fabien Ribery, L’intervalle
“It's the story of a sensitive experience that portrays a natural, almost secret universe, where each gesture unfolds in dilated time.”
Anne Laurens, Blind Magazine
“In the time that subject and object of this narrative granted to each other lies the successful attempt to communicate through codes that have been lost in favor of a rationalizing evolution, but that the relationship between individuals — not necessarily of the same species — can still teach us to regain.”
Raffaele Vertaldi, Domus
