The Reserve Collection is an exhibition of large scale digital prints, sited in Limekiln Nature Reserve, at the corner of Fulbourn Road and Queen Edith Way, Cambridge.  Created by artist Rob Birch, the work explores the relationship between the natural and urban environment.  The subjects of the prints are young people from Cambridge.  They are placed within the reserve as colourful ‘birds of paradise‘. The work explores the relationship between the seemingly rural setting and the urban reality of the subjects of the images.  

Visitors to the reserve came across these ‘creatures’ as they walked around, and were  drawn into the contradictory nature of these obviously urban creatures being placed in such a seemingly rural environment.
