I'm Matteo and I'm a professional photographer. I've always been fascinated by the beauty of birds.

In 2013 I decided to go in search of a Concincina as a pet for my studio garden in Milan. That's when I met Giorgio, a farmer who invited me to an aviary exhibition.

That very same day, the Concincina hen Jessicah (cue Unchained Melody) stole my heart.

My friend and work partner Moreno joined me in this passion/madness and we started to take pictures of literally hundreds of chickens and roosters.

Just look at them. They are beautiful. And they know it.

Eventually, we ended up with enough material to think about publishing a book. That's why we just launched a Kickstarter campaign.

Indonesian Ayam Cemani chicken, with its unrelenting darkness, is one of the world's most fascinating breeds. It's completely black, inside and out.

Ayam Cemani have black upright single combs and totally black legs and toenails along with pitch black feathers. They are also an upright standing breed, not this more horizontal carriage, this is not an Ayam Cemani. Also, they do not have a long tail such as this bird has.

Looks cool, but makes me sad that we have bred chickens to have all these extra feathers on their feet and legs of a type that would only cause them problems. :\
