When photographer Traer Scott began working on Radiant: Farm Animals Up Close and Personal, she did an internet search for the name of a breed of cow alongside the term personality. "Lots of results for the breed came back," she writes, "but below each result was this: 'Missing: personality.' These two tiny little words completely summed up my inspiration for making Radiant."
Scott turned her lens on farm animals like cows, goats, pigs, and chickens, and found that they have just as much personality as dogs, cats, or people. Each portrait is accompanied by a description of the animal's breed, as well as a small bio of the creature. She described the process of creating the portraits as "sublime," and they're just as fun to look at. Here are a few of our favorites.
