Presented in a white wood frame, this photograph celebrates the simple beauty of the everyday farm animal. Curious by nature, Detroit-based photographer Kathleen Martin is always eager to explore and share her discoveries through photography. To tell a story about a three dimensional entity in a two-dimensional medium, she makes an art of capturing the essence of her subjects.
This photo shoot was an exploration of the inherent beauty of barnyard animals. A portrait studio was set up in an old shed at a farm fair and the farmers were invited to bring their prize fowl, geese, cows and sheep in for a portrait.
