I am currently writing on a book and had more or less this exact idea for the cover.. therefore I am pretty speechless now (except it would be an origami angel). I admire your work. May I ask how you executed your concept? is it all just one picture or are the flames partly photoshopped etc? and how did you take the photo so nicely?
Thanks! This is actually two different pictures, one of the bird not on fire (right half) and one of the bird partially on fire (left half). I merged the two together because it is really hard to photograph fire and also have the un-burnt paper look good at the same time.
