If you thought that chickens are not noble beings, then you’ll be more than surprised with the portraits made by Italian photographers Moreno Monti and Matteo Tranchellini. The duo recently presented a 190-page book which contains 85 pictures of various breeds of chicken done in a high-fashion inspired style.

Monti and Tranchellini approached their models as they were show birds and trained the chickens to get into the perfect pose. The final outcome is a series of impressive portraits after which you look at chickens in a completely different way.

Let’s check some of the photos below.
