Meet the hottest chicks in town. And by ‘chicks’, we literally mean baby chickens! In his series Chic Chicks, photographer Dan Bannino captures the birds as high fashion models!
After reading an article on the fabulous avian species, called Paduan, the Italian creative met up with champion poultry breeder Andrea Pozzato in Padua, Italy, to learn more.
Bannino eventually built a small studio on Pozzato’s farm, then photographed each bird bathed in colourful lights, bringing out the beauty of their glamorous, ‘80s hairstyles.
Bannino said he did the series to show that chickens should be seen as more than just food.
“Some of us don’t even realise how beautiful a ‘common’ chicken is,” he said.
“Through this project, I’m revealing the unusual beauty of these animals and emphasising the contrast between their exploitation and their extreme elegance.”
