Champion Chickens

Photographer Tamara Staples has a new book out.  And her subjects are pretty amazing.

From Slate:
. . .Staples began photographing the birds around the Midwest in Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio, and Indiana over four years to get enough material for her first book, The Fairest Fowl: Portraits of Championship Chickens, published by Chronicle Books in 2001.

Staples’ second book, The Magnificent Chicken: Portraits of the Fairest Fowl, available Feb. 19 from Chronicle Books.


  1. Wow what beautiful birds and stunning photographs.

  2. Amazing aren´t they? That last one is a fuzzy velociraptor.
