James Darling is best-known for his continuing series Malleefowl Nests; large-scale installations of the extraordinary nests made by the bird that inhabits the south-eastern Australian region where his property lies. Darling is also a photographer, writer and artist of many hues, as well as a community activist, farmland conservationist, salt-land agriculturalist and highly successful cattle farmer.
