Steve the Chicken

"Steve the Chicken" was my first exposure to the photos of Kevin German (which can be purchased through Photoshelter). This single black & white image made a big impression on me. You can almost "feel" the squeeze of the little girl's hug around that chicken. How can you not smile? Again and again, I was drawn back to this image. Obviously, I needed to see more of his photographs. I admire how he is able to capture the essence of a moment and make the viewer feel that the image being seen is a snapshot from their own memory. Very powerful narrations. You can see more of Kevin's photos here and here. Kevin moved to Vietnam in 2008 & documents his travels though out South East Asia. You can follow his travels on his blog, Wandering Light.
