Note the twist on the title of the photograph in the artist’s statement. (Statement taken from the Matthew Marks Gallery exhibition notes where this series is currently on display):

The 30 photographs in On Any Given Day in Spring depict flocks of seabirds on the North Beach Peninsula in Washington State. They were made between 2007 and 2009 and capture the relationship between the birds, the ocean, and the sky. Adams writes of his chance encounters with the birds, “There is no certainty, on any given day in spring, that the birds will be there.”
