The series, titled Darwin’s Pigeons, was snapped by British photographer Richard Bailey, who was looking to capture the birds’ photogenic side as a tribute to the Father of Evolution himself, who it is believed was fascinated by the birds.
Richard, from London, shot more 50 different types of pigeons in total - ranging from the well-know English Carrier, to a less recognisable Voorburg Crooper, who was more than happy to strut its stuff in front of the camera.
All of Richard’s images were shot in a professional studio, meaning that the photographer was able to capture the birds in striking poses that Cara Delevigne would be proud of.
