Where Do You Buy a Whole Chicken?
Back in college, I went through a meat phase in my photography. It’s fertile ground and something I’ll probably continue to explore if and when I concentrate on photography again.
Before critique, as I was pinning the photos (bondage chicken) to the wall, one of my classmates said to me, “Where to you get a chicken like that?”
“It’s a marionette head. Is that what you’re asking?”
“No. I mean a whole chicken. Not cut up in pieces.”
“Where do you buy one? At the grocery store.”
“Really? You can buy them like that at the store?”
This was a college student and a very talented artist and a nice person. Still, I had to ask myself how it’s possible to reach adulthood not knowing that a whole chicken (sans head and feet, of course) can be purchased at the grocery.
