What is a pigeon fancier? Essentially, they are pigeon keepers obsessed with the art and science of breeding domesticated descendants of the rock dove. Mike Tyson is the most famous pigeon fancier in America.

Photographer Luke Overin took a camera loaded with 35m film to pigeon fancier's convention to document the practice. His portrayal of the associated characters is equal parts gritty and funny. If you don't know much about British people, frankly, this is a great entry point.
