The Art Of Flying By Jan Van IJken: The Incredible Agility And Grace Of A Large Flock Of Starlings

Jan van IJken is a photographer and filmmaker from the Netherlands. He is self-taught and is working mainly autonomously on long-term projects. As a photographer, he developed a strong eye for natural light, composition and detail. Lately he has become more and more interested in human-animal relationships, nature and microscopy. During the winter of 2014/2015, he captured the absolutely gorgeous sight of a murmuration of thousands of starlings taking flight at dusk and creating an incredible air show with incredible agility and grace as they flew in sequence with each other. A longer version of this film entitled “The Art of Flying” is available on demand. It is still unknown how the thousands of birds are able to fly in such dense swarms without colliding. Every night the starlings gather at dusk to perform their stunning air show.
