Chickens in the limelight by Alex ten Napel

We love animals at Strawberry Earth and therefore totally love this series by photographer Alex ten Napel. These chickens are so wonderful and healthy - this is what they should look like.

After 25 years of photographing humans, Alex ten Napel wanted something different. He choose to put chickens in centre of the attention.

As a busy photographer, living in the city, Alex ten Napel finds peace in the country side. The calming sound of cackling chickens caught his attention and the result is a stunning series of portraits.

Ten Napel: 'With humans there are so many emotions involved during a shoot, whereas a chicken just wants to be a chicken. A chicken makes you humble as a photographer. She's not hip and always stays the same; a chicken.'
