From the blurb: Reared and groomed by dedicated owners for participation in pageants, ornamental chickens, including the impressive Malaysian breed of Ayam Serama, project a natural and seemingly effortless charisma rivaling that of human models. Ernest Goh’s portraits capture the full range of these beautiful birds’ personalities: puffed chests, ruffled plumage, bowed heads and all. By turns provocative, humorous and surprising, the photographs in Cocks will move you to view our humble feathered friends in an entirely different light.

That’s right. Chickens like you have never seen them before. Usually seen chopped, grilled or fried, we forget that these animals are beautiful in their own right. Shot against a black background, Ernest was able to capture the quintessential showmanship showbirdship of these creatures. Ernest, in recent years, has been focusing his personal work around animals and this book captures his love for them. In a series of funny teasers on his Facebook page, he teases us with shots from the book. You can also view selected images on his site or buy the book at the store.
