As we grow more and more detached from the land and the sources of our food, animals that were once a huge part of daily life often go unnoticed. Photographer Cally Whitham set out to “reaquaint [people] with the ‘value’ we once placed on our poultry and livestock in our rural beginnings.” With the help of the 500mm end of my 150-500 lens and some very docile and patient animals, the New Zealander has created a collection that highlights the grace and elegance of the animals that our farming ancestors knew so well. See more of the striking collections in Whitham’s gallery on her website and Behance.[see_also]
