Leila Jeffreys is an acclaimed Australian contemporary artist. She is best known for visceral and mysterious images of birds that explore and subvert the traditions of portraiture.

Leila collaborates with conservationists, ornithologists and sanctuaries around the world to find her subjects before forging an intimate relationship with the birds that she photographs in her studio.

Who doesn’t? But with the IQ4 series from Phase One, it’s not just about resolution and the number of pixels – it’s about the quality of each of those pixels themselves. The larger the pixel, the more light it can capture – with less noise, 15 stops of dynamic range out-of-the-box, and the ability to capture even the most subtle of …
