Beth Moon, Chicken Photographer


Facebook introduced me to the photography of Beth Moon. I love her poetic comments on her pieces. Of “Augurs and Soothsayers,” her chicken collection, she says,

[English writer John Berger] suggests that the loss of everyday contact between man and animal have left us confused about our relationship, specifically, he writes about looking an animal in the eyes. Michael Pollen writes … “but this is what can happen to you when you look. And what you see when you look is the cruelty – and the blindness to cruelty – required to produce eggs that can be sold for 79 cents a dozen.”

These portraits were inspired by those words. I invite you to look into their eyes.

I hope you enjoy her work as much as I did!
