My artwork, although classified as photography, is equally about the installation of the set. I construct the sets from locally (and seasonally) found objects that give hints of a specific time of my life, to link the chicken to specific events in my life and/or a time of year. The images are essentially photo documentation of my current roosters and latest object acquisitions. I really enjoy photographing the chickens in a non-farm environment, and the images make people take a closer look at animals they rarely see outside of a styrofoam package.
