Matteo Tranchellini & Moreno Monti
The first and only large-format photo book on chickens
With informative texts on chicken breeds and how to keep chickens
A timely celebration of the growing chicken-keeping trend
It is no longer a secret that chickens are the new stars of the farmyard, meadows, gardens, and urban backyards. As more and more people think about local and sustainable living, the trend towards keeping chickens and home-laid eggs seems more popular than ever.
With this photo book, Matteo Tranchellini and Moreno Monti pay tribute to our favorite, feathered friends. With dazzling pictures, the photographers set straight some preconceptions about poultry, showing just what elegance, grace, and character these hens and roosters can display. With page after page of vibrant colors, intricate patterns, and dynamic postures, this book leaves no doubt: we have underestimated the feathered beauties of the coop for far too long.
Moreno Monti and Matteo Tranchellini live in Milan and have worked together for many years on international artistic projects, as well as advertising campaigns. Passionate about photography, they find that working together as a team can create creative synergies that would not be possible on their own. Chicken was borne of their creative collaboration.
