Spencer’s new project ‘Traces’ is an exquisite motion study of birds of prey, capturing the ‘art of motion.’

“Some years ago, I took photographs of a group of Parkour athletes in an attempt to capture the art of motion. In one of those images I saw the reflection of a birds wings, and ever since it has inspired within me the need to try a similar process with birds of prey. It has taken years for me to bring this idea to life – the images depict the traces of wing beats, attempting to both freeze motion and show the abstract beauty of it over the passage of time.
