Photographer Ernest Goh Explores the Surprising World of Chicken Beauty Pageants

Chicken Beauty Pageants

Ernest Goh is a creative Singapore-based photographer and visual artist. He creates surprisingly hypnotic and smile-inducing photo series titled “Cocks: The Chicken Book” in which he puts all our chicken-based assumptions to shame. This photo series focuses on Ayam Serama chickens, a beautifully ornamental breed of bird cherished for their build, showmanship and poise.

“I chanced upon the chicken beauty pageants while on another photo expedition to a farm in Malaysia,” Goh wrote in an email to The Wondrous Post. “As a photographer, I am always interested in photographing the human condition. But this human condition does not exist in a vacuum as we share the natural world with animals. My interest in photographing animals is a natural extension of my interest in the human condition, because we are all inextricably linked to each other. We cannot exist without the other. I hope that “Cocks” and my other animal series can in some way encourage us to reflect upon our relationship with animals.”
