Base out of Amsterdam, photographer Rene Mesman has captured a series of avian species in a rather dramatic fashion, but this notion isn't the defining characteristic of the shoot; each of the birds has donned a luscious wig that suits their individual colors.
Featuring a barn owl with a blonde bouffant, a crow with sleek, black locks and a rooster with a sassy red do, Mesman helps to give each of the fowl a touch of personality that transcends them from simple bird to an absolute character. Simple and sophisticated, Mesman's photography is an exercise in precision with a distinct attention paid to background, angle and color, which are all seemingly pin-sharp and flawless.
