Endangered Farm Animal Photo Project
As a natural light photographer, I am committed to raising awareness for farm animals in danger of extinction and the small farmers dedicated to their preservation. Through the sale of my artwork I am able to donate to organizations such as the Livestock Conservancy whose sole purpose is to save these rare breeds and maintain biodiversity for future generations to come. Never before has my purpose been so clear or rewarding. Together we can all make a difference, one photo at a time.
HERITAGE BREED PHOTO PROJECT
Raising awareness for animals in need
Heritage Breed Livestock & Poultry
Many of these animals are in danger of extinction.
I greatly appreciate that through my photography I am able to shed light on farm animals in need. I am currently working on a new series of images focusing on heritage breeds of livestock and poultry. They are like heirloom veggies, they are breeds that have dwindled and fell out of favor when agriculture became mechanized and we moved into commercial and factory farming.
I will continuously photograph all farm animals, however I will be putting a special emphasis on Heritage Breeds for a special book project I am working on.
The clear majority of folks realize that tigers and elephants are in danger of extinction if not protected…However they do not realize that we have numerous breeds of livestock and poultry that are also endangered, some critically.
Shire Draft Horses, Milking Shorthorn Cattle, Kune Kune Pigs, Delaware Chickens, Jacobs Sheep….these are just a few of the magnificent animals I am highlighting through my photo project. No need to travel abroad, the small farms I am visiting are all within a 100 miles of my home in mid-Missouri. If I can bring a smile and raise awareness for these animals at the same time…then Life Is Better With Art! If animals could talk, they would agree.
As my project grows it is my desire to move beyond my 100 mile radius and to incorporate other projects or additional books.
My mission is, also to provide professional photography services to the small farmers dedicated to the care and preservation of these special breeds. I will provide images free to the small farmers I visit so they may use to promote their farms and the animals they raise.
Numbered and Limited Editions of Select Prints Will Also Be Available. (Please visit with me at an art show before editions run out. I will add a select few to my website as available).
I am seeking funding for this project. If you would like to be involved, please visit my Patreon page for more information. www.patreon.com/kimcarr
