The birds of paradise are some of Earth’s most exceptional, yet little known, treasures. Tim Laman made it his mission to photograph—for the first time in the wild—all 39 species of this incredibly diverse group of birds. He and collaborator Ed Scholes studied and documented the birds in stunning photographs, videos, and audio recordings. On stage, Laman and Scholes share the challenges, discoveries, and adventures from 18 expeditions over eight years in search of these elusive wonders.
