This is my first ever published fashion editorial called free range. It was my first collaboration with the Fashion Editor Navaz Batliwalla and Make Up Artist Jemma Kid. And it was the first editorial job booked by Duncan Ord at Booking’s Models. I sent it to Oyster Magazine, Australia and didn’t know what to expect. They called it Free Range as the chickens appeared to be unrestricted, free and healthy. The paradigm of the story was to look at human’s intervention with chickens and how we farm them and interact with them for our existence.
