Chickens


Flaunting their high-fashion plumage, chickens strut and pose like runway models for photographer Ernest Goh. These birds, with their all-too-human expressions, are both funny and poignant, as if they are commenting on our own foibles. From the proud Serama of Malaysia to the delightfully humorous Silkie, Goh’s portraits, shot on location throughout the world, convey not only the beauty and diversity of various breeds, but also capture the personality of each fowl. For sheer variety in size, colour, feathering, and behavior, nothing beats the humble chicken, and no other bookcaptures this surprising phenomenon as well as the hilarious Chickens.
