Please read our disclosure for more info. Photographer Randal Ford believes that every animal has a story to tell. This compassionate perspective is at the core of his ongoing Animal Portrait Collection, a striking series that explores his subjects’ unique personalities and behaviors.

I have great respect for their profound history, the utilitarian aspect of their physiology, and the care and passion that goes into the breeding of each variety. At poultry shows all over the world, known as The Fancy, chickens of all shapes, colors and sizes await their judgment. There is an existing framework, a culture really, that aims to perfect these birds by breeding them based on a book entitled, The Standard of Perfection.

What made it so engaging was the mother attentively waiting for the chicks to cross while, out of shot, the father was leading the way”.

Three Shark Photographers You Need to Follow

It was the eve of Vladimir Putin’s ascent to the Russian presidency, and the height of the Russian bombardment of Chechnya, when entire towns in that breakaway republic were, as the Russians often put it, “made level with the earth.” Kozyrev, a native of Moscow, documented both of Chechnya’s wars against Russia in the 1990s. The first one, fought between 1994 and 1996, had resulted in a humiliating defeat for Russia. But the carnage was far worse when the conflict resumed under Putin in 1999. Tiina Törmänen Photography.
