You will never look at pigeons the same again after seeing British photographer Richard Bailey’s latest work. A tribute to Charles Darwin, “Darwin’s Pigeons” features stunning photographs of 50 types of fancy pigeons bred specially for shows, fairs and livestock exhibits. The shoot took place in a professional studio where the birds strutted their stuff and showed off their best plume for the camera.
When aboriginal rangers discovered that a camera they had set up to capture images of crocodiles eating had gone missing, they had no idea who the thief might be.

In the advertising world, it’s getting increasingly harder to get through to the customer, as the maze of ads has become just too overwhelming. Photographer Rene Mesman, working in collaboration with Dutch postproduction specialists at Souverein Weesp, was hired to conduct a photoshoot for shampoo and conditioner commercials, and found a very creative angle to get people’s attention.

Each bird poses with a digitally drawn hairdo, matching his feather colors and general posture, and the combination gives a really hilarious yet impressive result. The birds cover the traditional blond-brunette-redhead palette, and prove that there still are ways to creatively promote such everyday products as shampoo. Which of the stylish fowls is your favorite?
