I was just listening to This American Life podcast, which was on the topic of poultry. It was pretty entertaining. My favorite segment was the part about a photographer who takes portraits of chickens. I looked her up after I finished listening to the segment and I think her work is really great! Her name is Tamara Staples and she now has a book out that features her chicken photos called The Fairest Foul. I think it's a really innovative and unique look at the world of chickens –creatures that have been breed and are now sustained purely for human purposes. I'm looking forward to checking out the book sometime soon!
