Since I began my project, to create portraits of people who raise chickens in the city and suburbs, I’ve loved the reasons that people have done this. It seems that most of us, myself included, are not very connected with the food we eat – the main connection being the act of putting it into our mouths. In a small way, these people are acting as conduits for a re-connection with our food. Chickens, in particular, are a lot of fun just to watch – people call it watching the Chicken Channel. I’ll bet someone in your neighborhood is tuned to it right now. They might even be next door!
