Pigeons

Photographic documentation portraying the relationship between pigeon fanciers and their birds.

 

I was initially interested in pigeon's orientation and the role they played in our society from communication to war participation to carriers of medicines, among others.

 

After being in contact with several pigeon fanciers, I realized that the most interesting aspect was the actual relationship between the pigeon and their owners.

 

The portraits have been taken in various locations around the north of England, such as Doncaster, Blackpool, Malton.
