Two Chickens in Every Garage

TWO CHICKENS IN EVERY GARAGE

Urban fowl that teach us about farming, feeding, and eating.

 

Chickens play a vital role in the small-farming movement. Using an on-location studio, Aliza Eliazarov photographed her subjects against a black backdrop and isolated from their environment. Emblems of farming practices and philosophies, these chickens encourage viewers to think more deeply about our relationship with food.
