In the series 'Birds in Flight', Stenram has digitally manipulated photographs of birds so that their patterns of flight are curious and surprising. In certain images a chance of violence is apparent, as the birds fly directly at one another. In other words, the photographs 'subvert the traditional notions of freedom and inspiration associated with images of flying birds'.
