Beautiful Photos Of Cocks Taken In A Beauty Pageant

Ernest-Goh5

Photographer Ernest Goh is probably most known for his special way with animals. His fish photography book, simply called The Fish Book, gives a phenomenal, and quite humanizing view on the aquatic. For his next book – Cocks – Singaporean photographer turns his lens on Chicken Beauty Pageants, making those feathery animals look as human and emotive as the boy next door.

Ernest goes on a quest for searching beautiful chickens. Ayam Seramas are a specific type of chickens used as ornaments and bred for their beauty. Ernest followed their growth path from hatching at expert chicken farmers all the way to them being displayed at special Beauty Pageants.

His work around the subject has resulted in an obscenely named book – COCKS – The Chicken Book, which can be bought directly on his site.
